Optus strengthens network coverage in South Hedland

South Hedland residents and visitors have been given a coverage boost as Optus switches on a new tower, providing customers with improved communication and increased network.

The new 4G tower located in Southeast Port Hedland improves the density of the mobile coverage in the Pilbara region and enhances the Optus network for the Port Hedland International Airport, the local community and visitors to the Western Australia mining town.

The local airport welcomes more than 400,000 travellers each year, including the many FIFO workers from across the country who work in the mines.

Paul O’Neill, Optus Territory General Manager for Western Australia, said: “Not only does the new tower deliver improved 4G mobile connectivity, coverage and capacity, but it also provides competition and choice for local businesses and residents by offering great value.”

Ben Marks of Harvey Norman Port Hedland said: “The new Optus tower has proven high-speed connection for mobile coverage, offering a competitive network choice to stream, download and connect at all times.”

Optus continues to invest in improving coverage, reliability, and speed across its Australian mobile network.
