Product Description

Publication date: February 2017 - No. 85

Format: downloadable pdf - 15 pages

It would be pretty difficult to run a successful farm business without communications, and the smartphone has become an indispensable tool for most of us. Love it or hate it, our mobile phone is hard to do without, provided you have a reliable phone network in your area. Apart from making and receiving calls; text, email, web browsing and using apps are essential parts of our day-to-day lives.

But ultimately, a phone is pretty useless if it has poor reception and cannot send and receive calls and data from a tower.

Engineers Ben White and Josh Giumelli returned to outback New South Wales to test 30 Next G phones, making this report our biggest phone test to date. Unfortunately, we have found a general decrease in reception strength once again.
