Frustrating mobile reception dropouts on the Geelong to Melbourne train line could soon be a thing of the past. Telstra, Optus and Vodafone are joining forces in an Australian first that will see six new phone towers built along the busy route.
It means customers of all three networks will see improved coverage at the same time once the towers come online. Mobile reception repeaters are also being trialled in VLocity trains and, if succesful, will be rolled out across the rail network next year.
6.6 million passengers travel on the Geelong-Melbourne line each year, and the state government estimates improved mobile reception across V/Line's network will provide a productivity boost worth around $20 million.
Geelong commuters should notice improvements in coverage by the end of the year.
