Why Spacetalk uses Telstra's 3G Network

Why Spacetalk uses Telstra's 3G Network

At AllMyTribe, we care about the quality and performance of our products.  We want you and your child to be connected all of the time, not some of the time. That is why we chose the Telstra network, which covers 99.3% of the Australian population. 

Spacetalk™ is the only children’s smart-watch currently available in Australia that is guaranteed to work with Telstra’s Australia-wide 3G network coverage.  We have specifically designed Spacetalk to operate on both 850Mhz and 2100Mhz 3G mobile frequency bands. This is vital for providing reliable coverage, especially outside major metropolitan areas.

Other products in this category will work unreliably with patchy network coverage. These imported products operate on 2G and also have limited 3G capability. They typically have only one 3G band (2100Mhz) that can be used here in Australia.  All Australian network operators have built 3G networks that support two bands to provide coverage and capacity.  The low band is typically used for coverage, while the high band is used for capacity.

As this technology is intended for safety and security of your child, you need to ensure the device will work reliably when needed.

We extensively tested Spacetalk in field trials across Australia and even travelled to known Telstra black-spots.  We were elated when the performance of Spacetalk’s 3G mobile reception and call capability was on par, and in some cases better than, a standard mobile phone.

Telstra’s NextG network provides the most extensive coverage throughout Australia.  There are many resellers of the Telstra network so you may select a SIM card appropriate to your needs. You can check the coverage in your local area by performing an address search here.
