New mobile coverage for more than 1,400 kilometres of State Highways and 168 tourist destinations around New Zealand

Where is Mobile Black Spot Coverage?

In remote areas, installing continuous coverage on State Highways is very difficult. Rugged mountainous terrain with lots of hills and valleys makes mobile coverage difficult to achieve.

On some State Highways there will be‘islands’ of coverage which are sign-posted so you will know where the coverage can be found, and how far down the highway you need to travel to get into mobile coverage.

Please see the following maps showing the full planned coverage for the north and south islands under the RBI2/MBSF programmes:
