FRUSTRATED Optus customers who were left to wait more than 18 months for 4G in Kingaroy can finally breathe a sigh of relief.

Both of the company's towers that service Kingaroy have gone live for 4G, after an extended upgrading process.

An Optus spokesman said customers would now experience a superior mobile web service throughout the town.

"These two towers are now providing 4G services to Kingaroy which will deliver superfast mobile internet speeds for customers with compatible 4G mobile phones and tablets, while also enhancing 3G customer experience," he said.

Optus Queensland state manager Mark O'Shea acknowledged the rollout took much longer than expected.

"We understand the rollout of Optus 4G took a little longer than we hoped and we apologise for any inconvenience caused due to the delay," Mr O'Shea said.

The 4G upgrade was plagued with delays after it was originally announced back in October 2014.

At the time the upgrade was said to go live in the next few months but was delayed continuously.

Customers got their first taste of 4G late last month as one tower made the upgrade, but with both towers upgraded it should provide a better experience across the entire town.

Mr O'Shea said customers wanting to know more about compatible devices or more about 4G can chat to Optus staff at their Alford St store in Kingaroy.
