      Hi Pam,

      Depending on what device you’re using and whether you’re making calls and text or are after data, generally your address has good coverage and supports 3G and 3G+.

      To test your device and its reception, you can check your Vodafone coverage here: http://www.vodafone.com.au/aboutvodafone/network/checker

      Hope that helps,

      Stephanie
