Yeppoon Optus customers frustrated

SOME Optus customers in the Yeppoon area still have no mobile phone service.

This is despite a spokesperson from the telecommunications company saying the service would be restored by lunchtime yesterday.

Today Yeppoon residents contacted The Morning Bulletin to report they still had no service, after the network went down last Thursday.

When contacted by The Bully late yesterday, the spokesperson said Optus technicians were restricted by the weather and could not restore the service by lunchtime, but the service would be restored last night.

Optus this morning said its 3G mobile network was restored over night, and the 2G network would be working by this afternoon.

“Our technicians are on site and we are looking to restore 2G (network) this afternoon,” the spokesman said.

The spokesman could not tell The Bully where the transmission tower was located.
