If you catch the train in Melbourne then this post is for you!
Optus has switched on mobile network coverage throughout the Melbourne CBD’s City Loop underground rail tunnels.
If you’re a commuter this means you can now call, text, email and browse the internet while travelling through the underground.
3G voice and 4G data coverage is now available to all mobile customers using the Flagstaff, Melbourne Central and Parliament underground station platforms as well as throughout the City Loop tunnels.
Optus developed the infrastructure in partnership with the Victorian Government, Public Transport Victoria and VicTrack.
This is stage one of the project and we’ll commence planning and design work for stage two soon. The second stage will be all about enhancing the service, resulting in an even better experience for passengers.
