Re: How To Check Coverage In Your Area

Hi Andi and all,

 

I have Optus Home Wireless Broadband, am just getting the 5/1. How do I know when my tower potentially does upgrade to the 2300MHZ band am in Ferny Creek and am most likely using the Optus tower at 6 Merimbula Road. It seems the 2300 MHZ (Band 40) is proposed but has not been activated. Please see attached screenshot from oztowers.com.au.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated as 12Mbit would really make a difference. ~ UweOz_Towers__3786002_-_MCS_Digital_Tower_6_Merimbula_Road_SHERBROOKE_VIC_3789_.png

Re: How To Check Coverage In Your Area

Hey @uwe. I've just checked our network system and it doesn't state when/if 2300Mhz will be enabled at that particular tower.

 

I can see that 2300Mhz is available in the surrounding area although it's coverage is scattered.

Re: How To Check Coverage In Your Area

Hey @Toomey would you be able to point me to the surrounding towers, which are 2300MHZ enabled?

 

I have relatively free line of sights, would be interesting if there can be done something with external antennas. ~ Uwe

Re: How To Check Coverage In Your Area

The best I can provide is the attached screenshot which shows the areas covered by 2300Mhz and where the towers are. If a tower is surrounded by purple, it's safe to say it's operating on 2300Mhz.

 

The different colours represent signal strength

Purple = high Indoor

Green = low indoor

Pink = high outdoor

 

Hope this helps!

Re: How To Check Coverage In Your Area

I live in Chippendale (2008) in the middle of 4G Plus coverage.  On my rooftop (outdoors) 19 floors up, my Apple iPhone 6S shows only 1 bar and calls can sometimes drop out.  My wife's iPhone 6 has the same issue.  This is a high density residential area and many uni students with UTS, ABC and lots of SMB.  Probably a good place financially to be important for Optus coverage.
