The news revealed that one of the country’s largest mobile networks was recently caught by the billabongs in a freak rogue beer fridge accident. Indeed, the fridge in north-east Victoria was hunted down by a software “robot” of Telstra in attempt to identify things which interfere with the local mobile network.
Media reports claimed that the “rogue beer fridge” had been traced to a Wangaratta resident’s garage. The equipment insisted that the fridge had been interrupting mobile signals in the neighborhoods of the town of 17,000, situated about 230km away from Melbourne.
Unfortunately, media reports don’t reveal why a beer fridge would have it in for the Internet. Perhaps, it have been working for the resistance or trying to link other beer fridges across the country in a great electronic beer revolt. The other option is that it was broken.
According to Telstra’s area team manager for mobile coverage delivery, it’s just one example of hundreds and hundreds of investigative interference jobs which are done annually in Australia. However, he didn’t mention how many of them turned out to be beer fridges. Within the last 18 months, Telstra is known to be fine-tuning a "software robot" developed out of its Operations division in order to help track down sources of network interference. In short words, it’s an algorithm which crawls a database of performance statistics gathered from equipment across the NextG mobile network. Perhaps, its job is quite easy if it’s meant to look for beer.

xxxx for anything else.
|Well I am an Aussie, and I tell you what, if Telstra tells me to move my beer fridge I am going to have a few harsh words with them. We have 1 simple rule in Australia, "Thou shall not take a mans beer". I mean think about it, whats the point of talking to your mates on the mobile unless you can have a beer while talking. Anyway who cares about Telstra and the stupid mobile phone thingy, when i get home from work, the only thing on my mind is cracking a coldy. What happened to the good old days when if you wanted to talk to someone you did it face to face, (usually over an ice cold beer).||
