Optus announced today a further enhancement to its network coverage in South Australia with the installation of a new mobile facility at Talinga.
The facility will enhance Optus GSM network coverage in Talinga and along the Mallee Highway between Lameroo and Tailem Bend. The expansion of coverage facilities provides local residents with a real alternative to other carriers and allows current Optus customers to use their mobile phones in more places in the region.
Warren Hardy, Acting Managing Director Optus Consumer said, "The new site is part of Optus' strategy to expand our network and provide the highest quality of GSM coverage.
"The increased coverage will allow local residents and rural businesses to communicate more effectively, making it easier to talk while on the go," Mr Hardy said.
Harvey Marcus, General Manager Optus South Australia, said, "The new mobile facility at Talinga, together with a new site planned in Underbool has dramatically improved network coverage and performance for Optus business customers in the along the Mallee Highway and further demonstrated Optus' commitment to South Australia."
Optus has invested more than $92 million to roll out 265 mobile base stations across South Australia, providing network coverage to 97 percent of the state's population.
