I was very frustrated on much of my Mudgee to Perth trip by the lack of reception over much of the trip.
Certainly some of it caused by the floods but Telstra has certainly made my old 5510 Nokia redundant in mostly all but the biggest cities/towns. Still I cant really complain as I've mostly resided in places it has adequately worked and I have had it now for around 10 years. It is pre next G after-all.
