Abstract: A high proportion of Aboriginal Australians residing in remote communities are mobile-only internet users. This chapter examines how infrastructures and social norms are informing digital choices in these communities, and how this in turn influences the utility of location technologies. Within this setting, device sharing practices are undermining location technologies insofar as they are assumed to be associated with ongoing, individual use.
