Mobile phone coverage around Bermagui has just become significantly better following the launch today of a new transmission tower.

Federal Member for Eden-Monaro, Gary Nairn, conducted the official honours during a function at the Bermagui Country Club with Telstra Country Wide General Manager, David Gunsberg.

Mr Nairn said it was great news for the Bermagui community to receive the communications boost.

“The new tower incorporates both digital CDMA and GSM technologies,” he said.

“Improved mobile coverage in Bermagui will have a very positive impact on business and residents.

“It will help modernise telecommunications services in the town and provide real benefits.”
