Mobile phones only cover 27% of Australia's land mass.
Mobile phone services are available in urban areas, many regional areas and along a number of national and regional highways. Mobile phone services currently reach 99% of the Australian population where people live.
However, coverage is only available to around 27 per cent of the Australian landmass.
Satellite mobile phone services cover 100 per cent of the Australian landmass and population. (Sourced from the department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Econonmy website 4/10/2013).
Satellite phones don't work everywhere and some will suit you better than others.
