Optus switches Northern Tasmania tower to improve mobile coverage


Telecommunications company Optus has switched its tower in Northern Tasmania, providing enhanced mobile coverage in the town of Cressy as well as in Cressy Road, Green Rises, Saudridge, and Elphinstone Roads.

“This increased connection in the Northern region will enable our customers to do more of the things they love,” said Optus territory general manager for Tasmania Peter West.

Farming locals and businesses in Cressy will benefit from the new site’s faster download speeds and connectivity with the tower not only offering improved 4G connectivity but access to 5G through Optus’ mid-band layer.

“The number of visitors has increased in recent years thanks to the region’s thriving fishing community, with the town’s hotels and guest houses often completely booked out. The construction of the tower will ensure both visitors and locals can utilise world-class connectivity, without having to compromise on user experience,” West added.

This tower will provide new coverage and capacity to the area, offering a competitive telecommunications alternative for residents and businesses in the Cressy area, claims Optus.
