Telstra 3G shut down delay 

 The image captures a telecommunications worker in a cherry picker crane performing maintenance or installation work on a tall tower packed with various antennas and communication devices. The tower is situated in a dense, forested area, indicating a remote location. This type of work is essential for maintaining the connectivity infrastructure that enables mobile and wireless communication. The clear sky suggests fair weather conditions, which is typically preferred for such outdoor operations. The image likely represents efforts to upgrade or maintain the network, which could be related to the telecom advancements like transitioning from 3G to 4G or 5G services.
