Biloela gets faster internet as Telstra finishes upgrade

BILOELA now has access to higher-speed internet speeds after Telstra finished infrastructure upgrades in the area.

It expanded capacity at the current ADSL exchange, meaning that customers who are already on Telstra's service will be able to access higher speeds.

However, a spokesperson said this did not equate to getting more customers on to ADSL in general.

They said that while current ADSL customers should be able to access speeds of about 20 megabits per second, the exact speed customers ended up with depended on a variety of factors, such as how far they were from the exchange.

"We want to make sure our customers have the best experience possible when using our network, and so we've invested in improved infrastructure into Biloela," Telstra area general manager for Central Queensland Kris Carver said in a statement.

"We've listened to local residents who want more consistent access to higher internet speeds and the opportunity to use some of our premium products."
