Optus coverage just got better in Macedon Ranges

Four new sites completed in the last six months

Optus continues to improve coverage across the Macedon Ranges, with four new sites in the last six months boosting connectivity and delivering local residents and business competition and choice for mobile services.

The four new sites have now been completed in towns across the region including Newham South, Hanging Rock, New Gisborne and Kyneton West, increasing Optus network footprint and delivering coverage improvements for customers.

Optus Territory Manager for North West Victoria Luke Dietz said, We are thrilled to be bringing improved mobile coverage to the Macedon Ranges and providing communities in the area with real telecommunications competition and great value.

Ensuring Australians are able to access reliable mobile coverage is something we are continuing to prioritise. For regions like the Macedon Ranges, it means greater safety for people living, working and travelling through the area by unlocking access to communication.

The Macedon Ranges most renowned natural landmark, Hanging Rock, is one of the four sites that will now see improved Optus coverage. This site is a hub of recreational activity for locals and tourists alike.

Mr Dietz said new coverage in Kyneton West builds on an existing Optus tower in Kyneton which provides expanded service to the east and north of the town.

The introduction of these four new sites demonstrates our commitment to the Macedon Ranges region and improving network coverage for regional Australians.

Macedon Ranges is one of hundreds of regional areas enjoying Optus 4G network which now covers 97.3 percent of the Australian population.
