LOCALS on the Telstra network will have more coverage thanks to two new towers at Stanhope and Undera.
As part of a $12 million project across northern Victoria, capacity and speed upgrades to existing base stations, new small cells for 4G coverage, as well as Telstra’s contribution to the Mobile Black Spot Program will be rolled out.
“We know mobile coverage is a key priority for people and businesses in regional and rural areas,” Telstra area general manager Steve Tinker said.
“In Northern Victoria, this investment includes three projects to upgrade our mobile network in locations such as Stanhope and Strathmerton, installation of small cell technology at three locations including Ruffy and two new greenfield macro base stations including at Undera.
“We continually see the benefit mobile coverage brings to farmers, shop owners, doctors and schools in Australia’s remote areas.
“Mobile connectivity is becoming more and more vital to small business growth and stability.”
