However, there are some places you may find connections.
If you are a Telstra customer, you may have internet access…. But….you have to be near a main road while you are travelling on the island’s sealed roads and around the major towns you should have no problems being in contact. But on dirt roads and tracks….the connection can become very weak.
If you are not with Telstra…. You still may obtain a connection. Most island resorts, backpacker’s accommodation and hotels and restaurants may have Wi-Fi…and the SeaLink ferries have free Wi-Fi.
Public telephones are located at most centres and some attractions. Internet facilities are available in a few places, including the IGA store in Pardana .
