Telstra have said their Mark. III of the MEOW can now support 768 ADSL2+ services, 780 PSTN services and 16 ISDN lines. Comparing this to the Mark. II trailer, which could only handle 330 ADSL2+ and 330 PSTN services. MEOWs are used primarily to get communities back online after an emergency or a natural disaster.

A natural disaster will take down essential services such as ATM and EFTPOS, and in this near cashless society, this can cause huge issues for residents of communities who have no access to electronics. Telstra have built two MEOW Mark. III trailers, and will have them housed Gnangara in Western Australia and Flinders in South Australia.
