Lo­cal Tel­stra cus­tomers af­fected by mo­bile out­age

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

AN UNAU­THO­RISED in­ter­fer­ence left many Tel­stra mo­bile cus­tomers in Cannonvale and Ju­bilee Pocket with limited mo­bile ser­vices on Mon­day.

A Tel­stra spokesper­son said Tel­stra found the in­ter­fer­ence to the net­work on Mon­day and due to its pat­tern, sus­pected it may have been the re­sult of an unau­tho­rised mo­bile sig­nal re­peater in the area.

“Our net­work team tracked this down to a boat in the area on Tues­day... and we re­quested the own­ers turn the de­vice off and they obliged,” the spokesper­son said.

The spokesper­son said Tel­stra re­minded the com­mu­nity that the use of unau­tho­rised re­peaters was il­le­gal and could cause in­ter­fer­ence with the mo­bile net­work, which im­pacted on the wider com­mu­nity.
