Poor mobile reception in Bardia 2565

Hi, 

 

I'm just wondering when Telstra will fix the network problem in Bardia 2565? My parent and I are not the only ones having issues with mobile network coverage. We are depending on Wi-Fi whenever we are home. It is really inconvenient as we both work from home at times and requires network coverage to call out and receive calls.

There is no outage reported on https://outages.telstra.com 

 

Have you reported the problem via 

https://service.telstra.com.au/customer/general/forms/coverage-feedback

Hello,


I am having the same issue. This issue in BARDIA NSW has been ongoing for 5 years. We recently became a Telstra customer in the household and after spending hundreds of dollars the service does not work. Optus/Vodafone does not have this issue. When will Telstra fix this coverage issue in BARDIA?? 

 

I have just flled out the coverage-feedback form to report the issue.However, the last time I did this, you told me to go purchase an antenna which costs $1000+. Is this really feasible for an ordinary working class household? Very poor response...I have no hope this time around either...

Probably when the proposed tower at Edmondson Park Train Station is built.

The train station, yes. The mobile phone tower, no. Looks like it was proposed in mid-2017 and will have all 3 carriers on it once built.

Oh right sorry didn't realise you mentioned 'tower'. 

 

We're waiting on the government then i suppose...

 

I found out that Wifi calling is an option and i think after playing around a little bit that has kicked in. The service seems to work even when it's showing no reception now, and interestingly it kicks up to full reception after a while where before i had nothing at all. Here's hoping it will be sustainable until that tower actually goes up.
