Mobile Network Coverage

Mobile Network Coverage

Our mobile network covers 98.5% of the Australian population - from capital cities to regional and rural towns. Find out more by exploring our interactive coverage maps.

Important Notes

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.


An external antenna can improve coverage for some mobile devices in a fringe coverage area.
