Orama has patchy mobile coverage for the Vodafone network only from a cell site located on Kaikoura Island to the north west. This cell site provides coverage for the Port Fitzroy and Port Abercrombie areas and its signal is repeated over the hill to the Okiwi township. There is no access to the Spark network in the bay. One or two bars of signal can be found on the Orama foreshore, and much stronger signal is possible as you walk up the track to the lookout above Orama or up Karaka Bay Rd toward Aotea Rd. Typically there is no coverage inside any of the Orama buildings.
