Optus has switched on a new mobile tower in Paget, delivering improved coverage and connectivity to Mackay’s South East.

The Optus tower will enhance coverage to the area surrounding the intersection of Connor and Archbold Roads, as well as Paradise Street including the Mackay train station. It will also provide capacity relief for adjacent sites, boosting the overall experience for Optus customers in the area.

Optus Territory General Manager for Central Queensland, Madonna Burgess said, “Optus’ investment in Mackay’s South East has helped improve coverage and capacity for those in Paget, as well as providing choice for local businesses and residents by offering a fantastic mobile services alternative.”

“With this new Paget site, we have responded to customers’ request to have strong mobile coverage where they work, live and play.”

“We are thrilled customers will benefit from an improved network in Mackay’s South East and remain committed to investing in the region.”

Paget is one of hundreds of regional areas enjoying Optus’ 4G network which now covers 97.4 per cent of the Australian population.
