Satellite is for the serious outback traveller
Unlike many countries, Australia has large areas without mobile phone or Internet service.
Here’s how you can connect from wherever you are.
If you own a laptop, want to surf the net all day and want Internet access wherever you are (such as, if are running your business from your motorhome), then a satellite system might be your answer.
