Optus continues the rollout of its black spot program with a new tower switched on in the NSW town of Curlewis to give improved mobile coverage across the Liverpool Plains area.

The company says the new tower will address a known black spot identified by the local community, providing them with dedicated mobile reception to make and receive calls, texts and access mobile data.

Optus’ Territory general manager for North West New South Wales, Chris Simon, said, “This will be the first time Curlewis has had dedicated Optus mobile coverage, providing real choice and competition for residents and businesses in the area.

“The site will not only provide dedicated coverage for those in Curlewis, but also enhance coverage for those who travel along Kamilaroi Highway every day.”

“The tower will be located off McCormack Lane on the recreation grounds in Curlewis, a much-needed addition to the previous tower serving the area on Porky Hill.”

Simon said the new tower, along with Optus’ recent investment in the Tamworth region, “showcases that Optus is really investing in improving the mobile network across the Liverpool Plains and New England region, providing great coverage, choice and value to our customers”.

“Anyone who is looking for a new mobile phone plan or an awesome value broadband internet, home phone and TV entertainment package, come down to the Optus stores in Tamworth at Tamworth Shoppingworld or Yes Optus on Peel Street and have a chat to the team.”

Optus has said it would continue to invest in its network to improve coverage, reliability and speed across its Australian mobile network.

Just a week ago, Optus switched on a new tower in Pomonal in regional Victoria as part of the mobile black spot program, providing dedicated mobile reception to more than 300 residents in the town and along both the Ararat-Halls Gap Road and Pomonal Road for the first time.
