Telstra celebrates three-year anniversary of NextG network with coverage expansion

6 Oct 2009

Australian incumbent Telstra has said that it has extended the coverage of its ‘NextG’ 3G network to more than 100 locations that previously had no mobile coverage at all, iTWire reports. Telstra, marking the third anniversary of the launch of its NextG infrastructure, also revealed that it had installed more than 1,700 NextG base stations since inaugurating the network. The most recent areas to receive coverage include Jenolan Caves and Wollombi (New South Wales), Fergusson and Wadeye (Northern Territory), Manna Hill and Kingoonya (South Australia), Broadmarsh and Cradle Mountain (Tasmania), Lake Mountain and Dargo (Victoria), Daintree and Phosphate Hill (Queensland), and Marble Bar and Sunrise Dam (Western Australia). In addition, the telco has said that further expansion, as well as upgrades, are planned; Telstra expects 270 base stations to be installed or improved by June 2010.
