Over 40 new and upgraded Optus sites announced
Optus has announced 41 sites will be built or upgraded across the Central Coast, aiming to significantly improve mobile coverage across the region in an investment of $10.2 million.
Areas scheduled for these improvements are spread across the Central Coast, from Umina Beach, Bateau Bay, Mt White, Gosford and 37 other locations via Optus standalone investment.
The upgrades are a mixture of improvements to existing mobile sites and new site builds, with customers in these areas set to experience faster, more reliable speeds over mobile data and stronger call reception.
Vin Mullins, Manager of Mobile Access Planning at Optus said, “We have a strong history of providing mobile coverage to the Central Coast and are proud to be able to invest in the area to improve customer experience across the network – whether that be faster speeds when using your data on your mobile, or making calls on the go.
“The Central Coast has a growing population and has some challenging terrain both sides of the F3, which make this investment crucial to ensure our customers are able to benefit from our fastest network ever. Importantly, upgrades across 27 sites are complete and we have four new sites on air,” Mr Mullins said.
