MORE coverage, faster speeds and reliable reception remain top of the wish list small to medium businesses want from their mobile service, according to research to be unveiled at a special Telstra Technology Insights Session in Coffs Harbour on Thursday.

Telstra Area General Manager Sue Passmore said the information session, arranged by the Coffs Harbour Telstra Business Centre, would provide practical insights into how small businesses can get better results from mobile technology to help them be more competitive.

The information session will be held at Coffs Harbour Ex Services Club from noon.

"We'll share useful information about how to get the best out of your mobile technology that will be indispensable for local small businesses," Ms Passmore said.

"We're serious about helping local small business become more mobile and have spent more than $7.6 million on improving our local network in the last five years, including $3.4m on a new base station. That's over and above our investment in the new 4G network.

Telstra Country Wide representatives will be also be at their Palms Centre outlet on Thursday and Friday between 10am and 3pm to demonstrate their latest products and meet with customers to hear, first hand, the issues facing the local community.
