What is Optus 3G Home Zone?

  • The Optus 3G Home Zone device is a mini mobile base station which creates a "zone" of 3G coverage within your home. By simply connecting an Optus 3G Home Zone device to your existing eligible fixed broadband internet service you create a strong, secure, sharable 3G signal within your home giving you:
    • Better coverage in weaker signal areas
    • A greater reduction in dropped or missed mobile calls
    • Improved mobile broadband performance
  • The Optus 3G Home Zone provides you with your own dedicated secure 3G mobile coverage that allows you:
    • Total control of who has access to your network, meaning you can add or remove up to 11 people to your 3G devices approved list
    • Support for up to four 3G mobile devices simultaneously
  • The Optus 3G Home Zone is simple to install and is compatible with all Optus 3G phones and Optus 3G mobile broadband devices.


  • How Optus 3G Home Zone works

    • The Optus 3G Home Zone device creates a mini "zone" of 3G coverage within your home giving you up to 5 bars of reception. Please note: some users may experience a weaker signal due to home construction or geography.
    • The Optus 3G Home Zone simply connects to your existing eligible fixed broadband internet service to create a strong, secure, sharable 3G signal within your home. Up to four Optus 3G phones can be used at the same time.
    • You can always tell if you're connected to your Home Zone by a series of "3 beeps" which you’ll hear on your mobile before you make each call.
    • If you happen to leave your Optus 3G Home Zone mid-call, your mobile will hand the call over to any available Optus Mobile tower.
    • Coverage is available within an approximate 30 metre radius of the location of your 3G Home Zone mini device.

    Getting connected is so easy, all you need is:

    • An eligible fixed broadband provider and plan
