View Full Version : Optus 3G Melbourne Blackspots

28th October 2008, 07:49 PM

My workplace is near the corner of William St and Lt Collins St Melbourne.

Optus 3G coverage in our building is non existent.

I was wondering if anyone else is having problems in that general area or finding other coverage black spots in the middle of the Melbourne?

Coburg - a cultural and 3G wasteland.

I am finding Optus 3G coverage to be pretty dodgy in Melbourne at the best of times. Sometimes in fitzory -- Gore st, near Johnston, it can take up to 5 minutes to make a call. Really fucking frustrating, actually.

I'm two blocks away (Queen & Collins) and I have five solid bars of 3G all day, every day. Although in fairness I'm at 367 Collins, so...

Between Middle Footscray and West Footscray stations and again between Tottenham and Sunshine.
Always shits me going to/from the city and have it crap out for a few minutes in those spots.

Is there still no Optus 3g in the city loop? Though there is GSM.

No 3G at all, no GSM between stations.
