The NSW Telco Authority has completed capacity enhancement works at a government critical communications site at Bingie Grumble.
Managing Director of NSW Telco Authority Kylie De Courteney said the enhancements at Bingie Grumble play a vital role in continued community safety.
“By expanding network capacity at existing towers, the NSW Telco Authority is delivering additional emergency service radio communications bandwidth.
“During an emergency every second counts. The enhancements will minimise network congestion during an emergency,” Ms De Courteney said.
Eleven government radio sites across the State are being upgraded as part of a capacity enhancement project being undertaken by the NSW Telco Authority.
The NSW Government is also investing $320 million to expand the government radio network from 190 sites to approximately 700 sites.
This represents the biggest investment by the NSW Government in critical communications in two decades and will increase coverage from 35 per cent of NSW to more than 80 per cent.
