Looking to improve your indoor coverage?

Cannot use mobiles inside the house at all? Would love to get a smartphone but need to improve reception?


The Telstra Mobile Smart Antenna is a device that has been designed to extend indoor coverage for Telstra Next G® mobile or mobile broadband devices in Next G network coverage areas.


Ease and simplicity

All you need to do is pick the spot/s within your home or office where you can make calls, and the Smart Antenna can be used to extend that coverage to other areas of the home/office/workshop, where there is no signal or the existing signal strength is low.


How it works?

There are two indoor units – the window unit picks up the signal and the coverage unit amplifies the signal in the office or home. Then simply plug each of these units into a standard 240V power supply.




Major Benefits of using the Smart Antenna?

Increased coverage using the Smart Antenna, so you’ll be able to:

  • Make voice calls and access mobile broadband in more areas of their home or office
  • Improve the quality and higher reliability of these calls
  • Experience more consistent mobile broadband data speeds
  • Easy installation as there are no network cables or complex settings – truly plug and play, into a standard 240V power supply. 
  • Seamless coverage as you move between the extended coverage provided by the Smart Antenna and immediately adjoining Next G® network coverage areas.
  • Device technology that doesn’t require a fixed broadband connection.
  • Extended Handset Battery Life – the Smart Antenna can help improve your handset’s battery life by reducing the amount of battery power it needs to connect to the Next G® network. 

Otherwise if you’re ready to extend your coverage with this great new device please call please

call 13 22 00 or business 13 20 00.
