Optus enables connectivity for Melbourne rail commuters

Monday 16 June 2014 | 21:13 CET | News
Optus has announced a partnership with the Victorian Government and VicTrack, enabling Melbourne commuters to call, SMS, update social networks and browse the internet in the city's rail tunnels later in the year. Optus has implemented the network infrastructure to allow mobile coverage on one of Melbourne's busiest train lines. As a result of the city's collaboration with Optus, City Loop travellers will be able to receive 4G and 3G mobile coverage at the Flagstaff, Melbourne Central and Parliament underground stations and throughout the tunnels in between.
