We test the big three mobile carrier networks providers (Telstra, Optus and Vodafone) as they are the only ones with actual infrastructure here in Australia. If you use one of the reseller networks, not all features and services of the big three will be available to you. Our data rich test results are exported into Google Earth to allow carrier performance comparisons.
Our testing methodology is based on real world user experience. Most people do not have aerials on the vehicle’s or antennas to amplify signal strength in their homes or businesses. For those who live and work where there is poor signal strength, these technologies become solutions.
The Mobile Coverage App uses three baseline tests:
Signal Strength - Mobile Voice or Mobile Broadband
Time Series Network Performance
