Seamless Telecom Connectivity Solutions: Transforming Remote Operations in Australia


26 June 2024

Reliable connectivity is the backbone of successful operations, especially for businesses operating in remote locations across Australia. The challenges of maintaining consistent internet access can hinder productivity and efficiency, which is why our team at VoicePlus was approached to partner with a leading Australian service provider to address these issues and ensure seamless operations through innovative connectivity solutions. 

This blog explores how strategic interventions transformed connectivity for various remote sites, showcasing substantial improvements in performance and operational efficiency.

Challenge: Connectivity Issues at Remote Sites

Remote sites often grapple with significant connectivity problems, from slow internet speeds to frequent dropouts. Such issues can severely impact daily operations, causing delays, reducing productivity, and impairing customer service. For our client, which operates in diverse and often challenging environments, these connectivity woes were a major hindrance.

VoicePlus’s Strategic Analysis and Solution

VoicePlus initiated a comprehensive survey to understand the specific connectivity challenges at various sites. By assessing the existing setups and testing different solutions, VoicePlus identified key areas for improvement. This detailed analysis led to tailored recommendations, including switching to Optus SIMs for better reception, deploying new routers, and implementing speed boost services to handle high user volumes effectively. See three real-world examples of how we helped our client overcome challenges at multiple job sites to create an organisation-wide impact.

Case Study: Site 1

At site #1, slow internet speeds and frequent dropouts were common issues. VoicePlus's survey revealed poor Telstra reception as the main problem. By switching to Optus SIMs, the site experienced a significant improvement in connectivity, with download speeds jumping from 3.8 Mbps to 174 Mbps. This not only enhanced operational efficiency but also resulted in monthly cost savings.

Case Study: Site 2

One of their catering sites experienced internet slowdowns during peak hours, which affected productivity. VoicePlus implemented a speed boost service, nearly doubling the download and upload speeds. This improvement facilitated smoother operations, especially during busy periods, and provided a cost-effective solution to the site's connectivity issues.

Case Study: Site 3

At one of their remote sites, the existing MP70 router was delivering disappointing internet speeds, causing operational delays and productivity loss. VoicePlus deployed a new DRP MP70 router, resolving the connectivity issues and ensuring reliable internet performance. This upgrade boosted productivity and improved employee satisfaction by creating a more efficient work environment.
