Lake Barrington, Tasmania's top international rowing venue, and Derby, known for its purpose-built world-class mountain bike trails, will soon benefit from improved mobile coverage as Optus activates additional towers in the region.

Optus has invested in the construction of a new tower on a hill overlooking Lake Barrington. This new tower is expected to strengthen Optus’ network for local residents and visitors, including those who come to watch school rowing championships that draw teams from all over the state. Optus customers will now benefit from greater network density and capacity, as well as improved connectivity and network performance. The strategic location of the tower also ensures that travelers visiting destinations such as Tazmazia — a location attracting thousands of visitors to the region annually —      can easily stay connected.

Peter West, Optus territory general manager for Tasmania, is delighted that Optus' network improvements will provide the population with more competition and choice.

“The introduction of a mobile tower for the first time near Lake Barrington will enable customers to take advantage of our amazing network,” said Mr. West.

Additionally, the new Optus tower in Derby is set to address long-standing connectivity and coverage issues encountered by residents, local businesses and tourists alike.

Mr. West emphasized the positive impact of the new tower on Derby's connectivity, saying, "I am sure the new tower will be welcomed by residents and tourists, who will benefit from a more consistent and reliable mobile network and improved connectivity. Optus is thrilled to be able to improve the capacity and reliable connectivity needed to handle the increased customer load during events when there is an influx of tourists."

The investment in Optus' telecommunications infrastructure and mobile coverage is part of an overall initiative to improve coverage and dependability across Tasmania.
