These maps are circa 2007 and now these are unavailable from from the Bigpond site. (Lucky I saved them.)

You can download all of these 2007 maps from here NextG Coverage Maps Zip Includes all maps.

NOTE: These maps are really ONLY indicative of where one should be able to get connectivitly, and the general rule is, if you can get Telstra NextG mobile phone recption ? Then one should be able to use a Telstra (Bigpond) NextG wireless modem with your computer as well. Please expect that the maps will show exagerated area's, as when more than say 10km or 15km from a town in the bush, expect to get little or no reception at all.

FOOTNOTE: I have a USB Sierra AirCard 880U and first had it working under WinXP from the Bigpond install CD (which is all BP will support). When I got my Macbook Pro I was also able to get the AirCard working by d/l and installing unsupported software (Actually hard to find but listed on the BP site). Lastly re: an EeePC (c/w default Xandros) it looks as if one could also get this AirCard work as well (search wireless forums at, but as I have decided not to take my EeePC with me on my next trip round AU ! I have not bothered to try to get it to work, if it can be made to work under Xandros, it can probably be made to work with any Linux distro ? All be it probably a heck of a lot of work !
