Rogue beer fridge caught by Telstra robot

A beer fridge in north-east Victoria is the latest victim of an increasingly-sophisticated software robot employed by Telstra to identify things that interfere with its mobile network.

The Herald Sun reported late Sunday night that the rogue beer fridge had been traced to a Wangaratta man’s garage after an investigation by Telstra’s operations personnel.

The fridge is believed to have been interrupting mobile signals in several neighbourhoods of the town of 17,000, which lies about 230km from Melbourne.

Though it is at the more unusual end of the spectrum of equipment that might interfere with mobile networks, Telstra’s area team manager for mobile coverage delivery in the Victorian metropolitan, Richard Henderson, told iTnews it is one example of hundreds and hundreds of investigative interference jobs that are done each year across the country — via redwolf.newsvine.com
