Olympics means more mobile calls

The flood of people arriving in Sydney for the Olympics not only means extra traffic on the road but on the mobile networks as well as Telstra estimates that 80% of visitors will be using mobile phones. As a result, Telstra will improve its service to cope with triple the usual volume during the Olympic period.
