Recherche Bay Tasmania - 3G Coverage???

Can anyone advise the extent of 3G coverage for the various anchorages around Recherché Bay in Southern Tasmania?

Wottie, seems like we had internet coverage in the Pig Sties, but not in Cockle Creek or elsewhere.

That was the year before last, so coverage may have migrated south without our knowing it!

Re: Recherche Bay Tasmania - 3G Coverage???

I had some Testra coverage anchored outside coalbins. I can't remember what it's like in closer.

But certainly there is patchy coverage in the bay as I recall.

I've resorted to climbing the mast in a few places in the past (and hoisting my phone the up the mast in a bag with the hotspot on...) Didn't get that desperate there last time but I was on a big boat and we anchored out a fair way.

Can't answer the specific question, but this Telstra site shows a detailed coverage map that my assist with determining coverage in general...

FWIW, I am getting reasonable Telstra coverage at Cockle Creek (right at the head of Rocky Bay) and also good coverage nears the Bins coming in.

Thanks to all who responded
