Wizz all over Parramatta

Microwave access provider, Wizz Communications, has announced a new transmission site in Parramatta in response to reseller demand.
Cleared to provision services from October, the new site will cover an area with a 30-kilometre radius, Wizz director, Andrew Maclaren, said.
"There's been a strong demand from our resellers in areas that are poorly serviced by other technologies," he said. "We already have a very good metropolitan coverage and now we're starting to extend that to the outer metropolitan areas."
Maclaren said the new transmission site was on one of Parramatta's tallest buildings.
The provider is currently negotiating other transmission sites outside of the Sydney metropolitan area, in addition to locations outside of Melbourne and Brisbane, he said, but declined to name geographical areas.
"We really don't want to get people's hopes up about coverage until we're sure that we're going into an area," he said. "There's a reasonable capital cost and finding appropriate sites and negotiating access takes time."
According to the provider, the arrival of the site doubles Wizz's physical coverage in the Sydney Metropolitan district.
