Use our network coverage checker to see the Vodafone 3G, 4G and 5G coverage in your area. This Australian network coverage map should be used as a guide only - whilst we try to ensure accuracy; factors such as building construction, local conditions, device and software, download source and traffic volumes may impact your experience. While we continue to support you on our best ever 4G network, since mid-2020 Vodafone’s 5G network is progressively being rolled out to selected areas in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Canberra and Perth. For more information, check out our 5G network support page.
The coverage checker shows the coverage of the Vodafone network - in selected areas of rural and regional Australia, we have arrangements with other providers so that our customers may be able to access their 3G network, but we do not guarantee future availability of those coverage areas.
We have expanded our 5G coverage for postpaid customers with specific devices. If you purchased a 5G device from another provider, you may not have access to our full 5G coverage. The 5G expansion will be available to prepaid customers on specific devices in 2022.
To check the 4G and 5G coverage of the Vodafone network in your area, enter your device and location in the coverage checker above. If you wish to view our 5G network coverage, enter only your location or ensure the device you enter is 5G compatible.
To check the voice and text coverage of the Vodafone network in your area, enter your device and location in the coverage checker above, then click the arrow at the bottom of the map and select ‘Voice & TXT coverage’.
The coverage map has been made using advanced prediction tools which we aim to make as accurate as possible. However the differences between predicted and actual coverage are unfortunately unavoidable due to the nature of radio based mobile networks and the unlimited variations in environment at a specific location. For example, the distance from the network base station affects coverage and geographic features like hills, buildings and trees can block mobile signals and affect mobile reception.
Coverage levels are reduced inside buildings, cars, trains, trams and buses compared with outdoors due to higher mobile signal loss inside compared with outside. Inside buildings, the coverage depends on the buildings construction material and other factors including the number of internal walls and presence of elevator shafts for example. Building basements, underground car parks, inside elevators, upper levels of very tall buildings are common places where you may experience less coverage.
Newer 5G devices have broader 5G frequency bands and therefore are able to more effectively connect to the 5G network at greater distances from our sites - meaning that 5G coverage will be expanded. There are also differences in network modes between 5G devices. For more information, check out the 5G network band specifications for each mobile phone and tablet.
If you purchased a 5G device from another provider, you may not have access to our full 5G coverage. Check out our approved devices to see which have been tested and optimised for use on Vodafone’s network.
