Around Australia

Postby Ruby A » Tue May 08, 2012 8:19 pm

My family and I are planning a trip around Australia.

We are still very much in the planning stage and making lists of what we'll need and like to take, etc...

One question that keeps coming up is which phone carrier? Do we need to change?
Does anyone have any suggestions of the best (most coverage Australia wide) mobile phone carrier for this experience?
We'd like to be able to regularly phone and text family and friends.

All suggestions welcome...
Thank you in advance

First of all......WELCOME to the forum Ruby.

Now to your question......unfortunately there is only one phone carrier that has any reasonable service when traveling and that is Telstra NextG. I'd also suggest them for Internet too.

My other suggestion is to download Skype on your laptop and use it to keep in contact with family and friends. Skype to Skype is free with the exception of the internet download and if you keep it to audio only (no video) the download is very reasonable.
