Mobile phone coverage on island?


I was wondering if anyone can tell me wither there is mobile phone coverage on the island? I have an Australian mobile with Optus.

Thank you!

Yes it's usually good reception on the islands in the Mamanuca group, it's up in the Yasawas where reception is difficult to get.

Buy a local digicel card at the airport or Denarau marina, we do, and it's much cheaper than using global roaming on your Aussie phone.
