We’ve made it even easier to check mobile network coverage. With increased location accuracy, satellite view and an improved Optus 5G coverage layer, remain confident in knowing that the Optus Network has you covered. 


Check out an overview of all the new changes below:


Improved location accuracy

  • Predictive address search means it’s even easier to find coverage information for your area

  • Tap the GPS icon next to the address search bar and your current location will be displayed on our Coverage Map


Coverage info for your getaway destination or new home

  • Planning your trip away, or maybe you’re moving home? No matter where you are or where you’re going, you’ll want to make sure you can stay connected.

  • If you don’t have an exact address in mind, no sweat. Drag and drop the pin to any location within Australia, we'll display a detailed summary about coverage available in the area.

Satellite view

  • You can now toggle between standard view and satellite view.

  • By switching to satellite view, you can check for obstructions, such as buildings or trees, that may impact the quality of your mobile signal. You can pick up and move the pin around, to check the signal quality in a section of your home or property.


5G Internet and 5G Mobile coverage layers

  • Our Coverage Map now lets you see if you’re located within a 5G Mobile or 5G Home Internet coverage zone.

  • Simply select 5G Internet/5G Mobile to find out if you can experience next generation 5G connectivity.

Love the HUUUGGGEE pop ups on the left.. Shows that it was not UAT tested correctly IMHO as there is no way of collapsing them or closing them.


I like the new features of the coverage map, would be nice to have the coverage shown on the map updated as some places where you can get coverage don't show up on the coverage map.


Glad to hear that @ajordynwolrige and we appreciate the positive / constructive feedback. Rest assured I have tagged your post as feedback to the relevant team for review and future reference. Thanks for your time.
