Calling the weather on 1196 from mobile

When I call the weather service in my location from my fixed line I get my local weather recoding in Canberra. However when I call from my mobile I get connected to the recording in Sydney and have never gotten the one from my Optus mobile service. Is there anyway to fix this  at all?

Re: Calling the weather on 1196 from mobile

That would be the Telstra managed weather service.

As mobiles have no fixed location they would normally route via state based gateways between networks e.g Optus to Telstra.


Most likely all Optus mobiles for canberra/act goes via Sydney.


Nothing you can do on your side and very little chance that Optus would invest money just to move it to a datacentre in ACT.
