    Upgrades to the 4GX network by Telstra in the North West town will allow users to have access to improved and more consistent data speeds.

    Telstra Country Wide Area general manager for Far North Queensland Amanda Albon said there may be disruptions to mobile services in the area between March 23 and March 29 to safely complete upgrades to the network.

    “As this work needs to be carried out during daylight hours for health and safety reasons, our technicians will need to switch off some sectors which support mobile services in the area,” she said.

    “Every effort will be made to reduce the impact to our customers and we apologise for any inconvenience.

    Member for Mount Isa, Rob Katter said the new 4GX network will help graziers in the area but there are still other communities in need of upgraded services.

    “It’s a constant battle to try and get reliable telecommunications out in the bush and in country towns and it’s good to count some wins in this area,” he said.

    “Graziers are trying to run large businesses from remote locations and it’s become very difficult for them when there are problems with the internet.

    “Hopefully now the people of Hughenden will experience excellent coverage and high speed connectivity.”

    Ms Albon said Telstra is trying to stay in front of demands.

    “We’re staying ahead of this demand by introducing 4GX to increase network capacity,” she said.

    “This will allow us to continue to offer our local customers Australia’s fastest most reliable mobile service.”
