So I take this to mean that if I visit Oz next April/May, and buy a "blue tick" Telstra prepaid phone (preferably with an external antenna), that I might be pleasantly surprised where I can get mobile service?

Not really.

But after they finish - maybe.

This is a Government run project and how often would they finish on time. Not many times.

Not a lot of the real remote areas being covered. Mainly one at Coaen on Cape York, one at Finke and a some in the Alpine areas.

But It's a start.
