A rogue beer fridge has been named by telecommunications giant Telstra as the source of a mobile signal disruption affecting several neighbourhoods in its vicinity.

The guilty fridge was picked up by increasingly sophisticated software used by Telstra to identify points of interference in the network so that they can be isolated and fixed.

There is no word as yet on the model of the fridge or even the type of beer contained inside, however it was revealed that the technologically savvy whitegoods item was discovered in the garage of a man who lives in Wangaratta, a town of 17,000, which is about 230km
from Melbourne.

So next time your signal is playing up, maybe check your beer fridge isn’t feeling neglected or disgruntled.
