John McDuling for the Australian Financial Review:

Optus and Vodafone Hutchison Australia have signed a deal to share and build critical infrastructure to boost coverage and bolster their networks for the launch of superfast mobile services. [..] Optus will be granted access to around 1000 additional sites [..]

My sister gets excellent coverage on Vodafone in Earlwood, but Optus is bad enough to be non-existent. Assuming this gets ACCC approval, this would be the quickest fix for our area! Something tells me I shouldn't get my hopes up too much though.
