Manilla’s mobile woes

MANILLA locals may be without mobile service yet again as Telstra carries out upgrades on the town’s mobile tower.

Telstra will be installing new 4G infrastructure on the Manilla mobile tower tomorrow.

A spokesperson for Telstra said the “planned maintenance work is expected to cause just a short interruption to services”.

“The work will assist in providing long-term benefits for mobile services in the area and we apologise for any inconvenience,” the spokesperson said.

Locals have been plagued by mobile and internet issues over the last few months, with lightining strikes and maintenance works causing a number of issues.
