Mobile phone coverage in the city of Shoalhaven in NSW has been boosted with new mobile towers switched on by Optus as it continues the national rollout its blackspot mitigation program.

The new towers are designed to provide dedicated coverage and capacity to the coastal towns of Manyana and Ulladulla in the Shoalhaven area.

Optus Territory General Manager for Central West New South Wales, Tom O’Dea said, “The city of Shoalhaven has a lot on offer and is a hotspot for water sports and nature walks, with the warmer months being a significant draw card for tourists.”

“The new sites will cater to this seasonal traffic, ensuring the local community and holiday makers in Manyana and Ulladulla can stay connected with reliable mobile reception even during peak times.

“We understand the importance for tourism destinations like Shoalhaven to have dedicated mobile reception and capacity, which is why we are committed to providing great coverage, choice and value to our customers across the region.

“These new towers follow on from Optus’ recent announcements of a new site at Burrill Lake and co-location on an existing site at Lake Conjola, which have provided enhanced mobile coverage and capacity to the areas. We are thrilled to know our customers are benefitting from our continued network investment in Shoalhaven.”

Last month Optus announced that the town of Panuara South in NSW had improved mobile phone coverage with the switching on of a new tower, with the site selected and built as part of a jointly funded partnership agreement between Optus, the Federal Government and Newcrest Mining.
