A few years ago there was a RiotACT thread regarding poor Optus 3G reception in Tuggeranong. It turned out that this was a pretty common problem for Optus customers across Canberra.
Since that time, Optus has rolled out a new 4G network in Canberra. The coverage maps on the Optus website only show “4G – Outdoor” coverage. Previously with Optus 3G, we had “3G – Outdoor” coverage at our house. In practice, this meant that I had to go outside and stand in a particular part of the garden whenever the phone rang.
An Optus MVNO is currently dangling a tempting 4G carrot in front of my nose. Is anyone currently accessing the new Optus 4G network?
If so, how is the coverage, specifically in Tuggeranong and the Woden Valley?
In particular, I’d like to know about whether voice and data performance are OK indoors as well as out.
Thanks in advance.
