Proudly based in Port Augusta SA, Arid Land Communications (ALC)

provides Telecommunications solutions for Business and Domestic customers.

and has had as many as 13 employees - in 2019, we have 10 employees.

Our name reflects our home...

we live and work in an extremely hostile environment.

Port Augusta is located at the head of Spencers Gulf,

300km north of Adelaide, Capital of South Australia.

South Australia is known as "the driest state in the driest continent on earth" and,

Port Augusta is testament to that

...with an average of 245mm (9.7 inches) of annual rainfall 

and temperature extremes from -4C to a record 49.5C (2019...24.8F to 121.1F)

and 320 days of sunshine per year.

ALC covers a massive area we estimate at 85% of South Australia geographically,

(around 837000 square kilometres), travelling huge distances,

servicing contracts for major Telco's and other entities,

as well as our own large base of customers.
