Hey @danielw713 If you were moving addresses, you can take the wireless service with you. As long as there is service towers in your area, you should be able to receive connectivity. To check before you move- you can do so via this link here → https://bit.ly/2XoUtK8

@danielw713 @Tuong_YC If you move you take the modem etc with you. When you get there (aka including holidays by the way) try it and if the speed sucks then you have a few options:

a) Cancel the service and payout the $216 (max) or lower depending on how Optus calculate the cost of the modem over the 24 months. Once you payout the money you own the modem and can then  sell it.

b) Try to lock the modem to specific bands in order to try and maximise the speed. Search for "LTE-H Monitor" (https://yescrowd.optus.com.au/t5/Mobile/Is-it-possible-to-Telnet-into-either-the-B525-or-B818-that-O...

c) Try a Beyond or Vodafone SIM that is on special at Woolies or Coles to see if they are better than Optus.

d) Do nothing and waste money.. Do not do this.

e) Check out whirlpool for external antenna's you put on the roof if you are in line of sight to an Optus tower.  (https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/thread/9p8yvml9?p=120)

 

You can check the optus 4G coverage on the https://www.optus.com.au/about/network/coverage page, but be aware that this is will show best case and does not take into consideration interference caused by objects between you and the tower in allot of cases.
