These innovative phones are powered by solar energy and utilise a powerful satellite connection. Calls to all fixed phones in Australia are completely free. A standard prepaid phone card is used for mobile calls, international and premium numbers. At last count more than 390,000 calls have been made using community phones.
As the installations have progressed, Activ8me and the Australian Government have looked at various ways of enhancing the end user experience. One enhancement that was requested by many communities was the addition of a light source to the community phones to illuminate the surrounding area at night. A bright, waterproof and low power draw light was required. The Microlux SI3_2-1MV waterproof light from Labcraft proved to be the ideal solution, meeting all of the requirements. When mounted below the solar panels, the Microlux SI3_2-1MV brightly illuminates an approximate 5m radius around the community phone, making easy to see the information panel, handset and keypad. Feedback from communities has been very positive after installation, as other light sources are usually limited. Lights have been installed at 100 sites so far, with another 150 scheduled for install by June 2015.
