Optus has switched on a new tower at Kangaroo Island East as part of the Australian Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program.  

The new tower will provide the best Optus coverage and connectivity to the community and tourists in the East side of Kangaroo Island.

The Optus mobile tower will provide enhanced mobile coverage to 45 premises with 51 sq kms covered. The Kangaroo Island East Tower will provide essential communication services for critical times, particularly during bushfire season to help those living and working on the Island’s East side to stay connected.

Rob Seymour, Optus’ Territory General Manager for Regional South Australia, said that Optus continues to provide mobile competition and choice to regional and rural South Australia.

“We know how important reliable Internet access is for those living and working across regional Australia,” he said. “This tower will provide our customers with enhanced connectivity while living, working and driving through the region by unlocking access to communication and will also help to facilitate contact with family and friends throughout the country.”

“The investment in expanding Optus’ telecommunications infrastructure and mobile coverage is supported by the federal government’s mobile black spot program, and we recognize the work of the federal and state governments, local businesses and communities for their support of this program.”
