M2M One network coverage and operating frequencies

The Telstra Mobile network offers the best breadth and depth of third generation mobile coverage in Australia covering more than 2.1 million square kilometers. The network provides mobile broadband access to 99% of Australians, spanning city to country and servicing  many remote coastal and rural communities.

Like any other mobile network, mobile coverage depends in part on where you are and what particular device you are using. To get the best out of mobile coverage in regional areas, it is recommended that you adopt an external antenna to increase the signal strength and coverage.
