All eyes are on Tamworth this weekend as an expected influx of more than 50,000 country music fans head to Australia’s country music capital for the 2018 Tamworth Country Music Festival.

Social media will be a popular choice for our customers to share their experiences, which is why we are providing two Telstra ‘rockets’ to boost our 4G capacity for our mobile customers.


These are essentially miniature temporary base stations with increased 4G capacity, to create an even better experience for event-goers on the Telstra mobile network.

Additionally, we have just switched on a new tower at Tamworth South, in time for the big event, adding 3G and 4GX services to the area and bringing the total number of permanent mobile sites providing mobile coverage in Tamworth to 10.

This is part of Telstra’s commitment to providing our customers in regional and rural Australia with superior mobile coverage and part of a $9 million worth of investment in the mobile network that Telstra is making in the New England region.

We hope our customers have a fun and safe time in Tamworth and we look forward to seeing it all on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
