Competitive Mobile Coverage

Tasmania’s “variable” terrain makes it difficult for mobile services to operate without large numbers of towers.

Historically all three operators have provided mobile voice and more recently mobile broadband services, but to vastly differing coverage areas.

Digital Tasmania supports all operators expanding their networks in Tasmania to underserved areas as well as densely populated areas. Both kind of expansions provide choice for customers as well as reliability of service.

Details of active and proposed mobile sites in Tasmania can be found at the Radio Frequency National Site Archive.
