Excursion Phones

There is no doubting coverage is network dependent, In Australia, there are three mobile network owner/operators: Telstra, Optus, and Vodafone. All other mobile service providers lease service from one of these three networks.

Currently, Australia’s number one network is Telstra, for the best coverage, fastest speeds and reliability.

Like any mobile network, coverage on the Telstra Mobile Network depends on the mobile handset itself and where you’ll be using your device – metropolitan areas, regional areas, rural areas, out at sea or indoors.

One way you can be sure that you’re experiencing the best possible coverage in regional and rural locations. Is by choosing a Telstra ‘Blue Tick’ tested mobile phone, which offer enhanced cellular performance, meaning better coverage in rural and regional areas.

Samsung’s Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ are the first smartphones to receive “4G Blue Tick Certification” from Telstra, up until now, Telstra’s Blue Tick only tested for calls over 3G. Given the transition to 4G calling technology, Telstra has now extended Blue Tick testing to its 4G network. However, the Blue Tick certification only applies to voice coverage, rather than data speeds. The Telstra Blue Tick isn’t just for one type of cellphone. The newest 5G-enabled smartphones can get a Blue Tick just as easily as simple flip phones. With the Telstra Blue Tick program, you can find prepaid phones, smartphones with a monthly plan, old-school flip phones, or the newest high-end phones, as long as they pass the Telstra Blue Tick test.
