codyc1515:johnr:Geektastic: I think the answer must be to allow handsets to roam on all available networks in NZ - so if you cannot use VF, and XT is under capacity, you can use that and vice versa.
Please tell me you are joking?
Would this not overload the other network think about the operating frequency of handsets and everything else that has to be considered,
They do this in the US, though, not necessarily for capacity but rather for coverage. As for frequencies it would either roam or it wouldn't, simple as that. It could also work out better money-wise for Vodafone as the XT phones would nearly always roam on Vodafone (due to the frequency differences) vs. Vodafone phones roaming on XT.
No they don't do this in the US no network on this planet would allow it to happen, Think of the variables in the radio planning and then transmission and RNC capacity,
