Optus deploys more generators in north Queensland

Optus has rolled out 33 generators in the Townsville, Cairns, Mackay, Rockhampton and Fraser Coast areas to improve the reliability of key sites, part of what the company said is a nationwide program to improve the resiliency of its regional network.

“We know that network continuity during natural disasters is critical, and while the industry works on a range of solutions with energy providers and emergency services this boost of new generators is crucial to ensure our sites are best supported to handle any unfavourable weather conditions and deliver a resilient network,” said Optus Territory General Manager for North and Central Queensland Dave Morrissey.

Optus said it has invested more than $6 billion into its network since 2015 and now has more than over 8000 mobile sites across Australia.
