Telstra’s Underground Network Is Still Just A Test

Telstra’s Underground Network Is Still Just A Test

Tunnel dwellers around the Sydney CBD might have noticed in the last week that Telstra has dramatically improved the coverage in the city’s railway tunnels. While that’s good news, the telco has told us that right now it’s only testing the coverage capabilities.

A brief comment from Telstra reads:

A system is being installed however it’s only in the testing phase. Please check in with RailCorp or the Minister’s office for details on the project.

Elsewhere, Telstra and other telcos provide mobile services at the stations in the Melbourne Underground Rail Loop (MURL). There is also mobile coverage in the Perth Underground rail network.

Don’t say we didn’t warn you that the coverage might drop out or disappear entirely for a spell over the next few months.
