Mobile data on Christmas Island

Answered

Hi Guys,

 

I was wondering if someone might be able to answer this for me, currently, on Christmas Island, have full mobile coverage and can make calls without any problems. But no mobile data, looking at the Telstra coverage map it states Christmas Island should be getting 4Gx (2-75Mbps). is there something special you need to get added to your sim card for use in Christmas Island or any network faults that would be blocking mobile data?

 

Regards

Simon

Re: Mobile data on Christmas Island

No, there is no mobile data service on Christmas Island.

That won't be able to happen until after the new Perth-Singapore (INDIGO) cable is completed and operational.
Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

  • Yes it was, thank you

Hi srose,

 

Looking at the coverage maps, it is showing that there is coverage for calls and messages (in the two shades of green) but regrettably no mobile data access.
