How to get your digital signal in Sydney
News.org.au | 11 July 2017 05:01:36A new wireless service is being rolled out in Sydney’s west.
The new wireless network will enable residents in the area to access services from the internet, with services provided by providers like iiNet and TPG.
The service will be available in both central and outer Sydney.
The NSW Government says it will provide a service similar to those in Brisbane and Adelaide.
In an announcement on Tuesday, it said it will operate the new network in the outer suburbs of the CBD and Newtown and provide the same coverage to those within these boundaries.
“We’re also working on a new network to connect those residents in western Sydney and the outer metropolitan areas,” the NSW Government said in a statement.
“This new network will provide the coverage that’s been lacking in the CBD for a number of years, which we’re looking forward to seeing through the end of the year.”
The NSW government has been lobbying for more mobile phone coverage in the state.
The state has been one of the worst areas for internet users in the country, with around three-quarters of the population using only a smartphone, according to a 2016 study by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA).
