PostSubject: Vodafone Australia Coverage.   Mon May 11, 2015 10:07 pm

Hey all you blokes from Down Under,
Been using Telstra for 8 years .....currently out of contract -  BYO Ph, unlimited Nat calls/sms, 3Gb  data for $100/month. (I don't use the data)
Vodafone offering same plus a few extras for $35/month.

I'm after advice from people with current Vodafone experience, town and country around SEQ.

Help!

SEQ coverage is patchy at best, Optus is betterer but not perfect, Telstra gives best coverage - probably applies to all of Oz. Try Optus or one of its brand resellers like IInet

Business phone! And needs best possible reception when I'm out of the city.
My cost becomes irrelevant if/when I'm missing out on work because the mobile fairies have gone to lunch.

I know Vodafone have a dodgy past, one of their re-sellers is chasing my business. He claims they now have equivalent coverage to Telstra.

So I am after people who have a current mobile contract with VODAFONE, to ascertain if their coverage has improved.

I use a dual Sim card phone in the US made by BLU.
You buy them unlocked cheap on Amazon and they'll work with any GSM carrier just about.
If they're available down under, you could try them...

I moved from Vodafone to Optus (via IINet) because of their lack of coverage. Nothing has changed, just look at their coverage maps (every carrier has one - you just have to dig). marketing is one thing, reality is another.

Wayne stick with a Telstra carrier but I would recommend staying away from Telstra itself, they self admit they will not compete. There are still a few holes in SEQ but that is in the ranges and no-one offers guaranteed 100% coverage. As I said, try Souther Phone - they can do Optus or Telstra networks - funny they used to do Vodafone too - wonder why they dropped them?

Whats the actual location?
Would be a 600+km ride for me to do a return journey, no luggage carrying capacity on Bella.
Also running fat after last attempted fuck-up with TPS setting by a "nameless" mechanic.
I have to get some brass fittings to attach Co2 meter to do trims properly as well .......
