Optus earmarks $10m for Qld mobile infrastructure upgrade
Optus has announced it will build 22 new mobile sites across western Queensland, including 18 via standalone and four via the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program.
As a result of this rollout, Optus coverage will be extended by more than 600km across the Cunningham, Warrego, Carnarvon and Castlereagh Highways. Fourteen sites are said to have already been completed, with another eight to follow by June.
The overall 18 Optus sites represent an $8.2 million commitment from Optus to improve its network in the area. The four Mobile Black Spot Program sites are the result of a joint $1.8 million program investment by the federal and state governments and Optus.
