Check for mobile outages

 

If you have already confirmed that there's no issue with your device or your account then there may be an issue on the network. An unplanned outage or network maintenance may cause either an intermittent or no data connection at all.

  2. You just need to enter your phone’s make and model and your location’s suburb and post code

 

>>  Mobile network coverage may vary depending on your location. You can check for data coverage availability in your current location by clicking HERE

 

>>  Acceptable data speed are as follows:

  • 4G – between 1 Mbps & 30 Mbps, average download speed 10 Mbps
  • 3G – between 0.5 Mbps & 8 Mbps, average download speed 2 Mbps
  • If current data speed is below the acceptable speeds, you may be experiencing signal/coverage issues. Click HERE for the signal/coverage troubleshooting guide
