Stay connected Australia-wide with Optus Satellite

Wherever you have direct line of sight to the satellite

Australia is a big country with a wide-ranging landscape, which means there will be areas where a standard mobile network just can't reach. For these areas, you need the Optus SatSleeve+, which turns your compatible smartphone into a satellite phone. As long as you have direct line of sight to the satellite and an active satellite plan you can stay in touch with calls, SMS and access data right across Australia.
