Lambo Kanagaratnam, Vice President of Networks said Optus is pleased to provide the local community with greater mobile competition and choice.

Were proud to be offering our customers much-needed access to our 4G service. This tower will provide our customers with greater communication while living in, working in, and driving through the region,” he said.

The Cunderdin North tower will also allow competition and choice for local businesses and residents when it comes time to choose a network provider. It is part of our commitment to giving our customers and the community access to reliable mobile coverage and high-quality internet.
