Monkey Mia is set to benefit from much-needed coverage and connectivity thanks to a new Optus mobile tower in the area.

The new tower, located along the Wulyibidi Yaninyina Walking Trail, provides Optus customers with greater communication while living, working in, and traveling to Monkey Mia, including more than 100,000 tourists that visit the region each year.

It will provide dedicated capacity and bandwidth to the peninsula, strengthen Optus’ services to the region and provide coverage to residents, businesses and visitors in the area including the RAC Resort.

The mobile coverage enabled by the new Optus tower in Monkey Mia will help keep residents and visitors connected to vital services such as calls to the SES in cases of emergencies.

Optus Territory general manager for WA Paul O’Neill said he was excited to be switching on the Monkey Mia mobile tower and providing customers with competition and choice.

“We’re pleased to be powering up Monkey Mia and continuing to strengthen connectivity across the region to allow our customers to do more of the things they love, in more places,” he said.

“Not only does the new tower deliver improved 4G mobile connectivity, coverage and capacity, but it also provides competition and choice for local businesses and residents by offering great value.”

The investment by Optus into regional areas has transformed what was once an unreliable area for connectivity, to an area that can now stay connected or get back online rapidly in times of natural disaster.

The Monkey Mia tower will add to the existing coverage in the area with the Denham tower servicing the other side of the peninsula.
