My wife and I have been with AAPT with our internet, home phone and 2 mobiles for years and have never been happy with our mobile coverage especially compared to any Telstra user we know. AAPT uses Vodaphone, so I guess it is really a Vodaphone thing and not so much AAPT. AAPT will soon? be switching over to Optus as they have merged with IINet.
So what I would like to know from users of any of the 3 carriers above is what your coverage is like in general (especially between Optus and Telstra).
I live 1 .6 kms from the mobile antennas here in Orange NSW with nothing other than your normal trees and houses between us and the towers and yet we basically have no service inside the house and very limited outside as well. My phone is a 5 year old Nokia 6300 and my wife's is a fairly new IPhone 3 and both phones have the same problem. When friends come here they don't seem to have any problems with their mobiles.
