Two new phone towers have come to Popanyinning and Cuballing, strengthening coverage and bringing more competition to the region.

The new Optus towers are set to boost coverage in both towns and along busy stretches of the Great Southern Highway.

It comes after Optus entered into a joint agreement with the State Government aiming to bring more 4G connectivity to the Kimberley, Pilbara, Midwest and Goldfields.

Optus WA general manager Paul O’Neill said he was happy to be able to improve coverage in the Wheatbelt.

“We are continuing to expand our footprint across regional WA and, in particular, the Wheatbelt region to help people on the go who are relying on mobile services,” he said.

“We’re proud to be capturing the full potential of the digital economy and strengthening connectivity.

“Not only do our new towers deliver improved 4G mobile connectivity, coverage and capacity, but they also provide competition and choice for local businesses.”
