What influences your network coverage?

Like any mobile network, coverage on the Telstra Mobile Network depends on where you are, the mobile handset, tablet or mobile broadband device you’re using, and whether an external antenna can be attached. It’s important to understand that different devices have different capabilities.

There are some important factors to consider when choosing a mobile device and any accessories:

  • Where you’ll be using your device – regional areas, rural areas, or metropolitan areas out-at-sea or indoors; and
  • Whether you’ll be using it:
    • in handheld mode
    • with a car kit and an external antenna; or
    • with a patch cable and an external antenna.
  • Obstructions – such as buildings, vehicles, trees, hills and building materials – can all reduce signal.

How do network coverage extension devices maximise your coverage?

Network coverage extension devices amplify the network signal your mobile device receives, which extends the area that your device can work in.

These devices can help you connect to the Telstra Mobile Network from further away than normally possible, or in areas where signal may struggle to penetrate – such as indoors, or in hilly or dense terrain.
