IMPORTANT STUFF ABOUT MOBILE DEVICES
It's true - it's important to have the right device and plan to get the coverage you need. Whether that's a mobile phone, tablet, USB dongle or wireless modem for your laptop, they all use one or more of the 'G' technologies on the Optus Mobile Network. And the availability of these different types of coverage varies depending on where you are.
Oh, by the way... the coverage shown is only for devices purchased from Optus. If you got your device from somewhere else, make sure it is compatible with the Optus network. Even if it has the same model name and looks the same, it might use different frequencies and technologies, and can impact your network experience. There are generally a small number of devices like this and so if you're not sure, we're always here to help.
3G & 4G DEVICES
4G provides superfast internet access and 3G provides voice and fast internet access for your devices, on the go. You'll need to be on a compatible plan and be aware that:
2G & 3G SINGLE BAND DEVICES

ABOUT OUR COVERAGE MAPS
We build our coverage maps using the latest tools so we can show you predicted Optus mobile outdoor coverage as best we can.
But, like any radio-based network, coverage is going to vary in quality and availability. This could be because of your device, how close you are to our nearest mobile tower, or how many people are using the Network where you are.
Also, local conditions and things like hills, concrete structures, high-rise buildings, lifts, basements and tunnels may all affect your reception.
Optus' coverage maps show planned rollouts. These predictions are based on rollout schedules available at the time of publication and may change without notice.
IMPROVING YOUR COVERAGE
An external antenna can improve coverage for some mobile devices in a fringe coverage area.
