Vodafone to boost 4G services in Kalorama

Introducing more coverage and choice to customers in the Dandenong Ranges

Vodafone today announced plans to improve mobile coverage in parts of the Dandenong Ranges with the addition of a new Vodafone mobile site at Kalorama on the eastern outskirts of Melbourne.

The tower will provide additional 4G mobile voice and data services and more choice for local residents and businesses. Today’s announcement follows a long campaign by the local community to address coverage issues in Kalorama and surrounding areas.

Vodafone’s new mobile tower will be built under the Priority Locations round of the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program.

Vodafone Chief Technology Officer Kevin Millroy said Vodafone’s new mobile site in Kalorama is part of Vodafone’s continued commitment to provide advanced mobile services and more choice and competition to Australians living in suburban and regional areas.

“We are working to deliver advanced mobile services to communities across Australia. Participating in the Federal Government’s Mobile Black Spot Program has allowed Vodafone to build on its own investment and make a positive difference in the lives of Australians across the country,” said Mr Millroy.

“This tower will provide a much needed boost to mobile coverage in and around Kalorama, giving locals more opportunity to take advantage of the economic and social benefits strong mobile communications offers.”
