Hi guys,

I was going to buy a tablet from the US that has these specs:

HSPA + @ 2100/1900/AWS/850 - Quad Band

Just wanted to see if it will work with Vodafone and/or 2degrees?

Thanks

You need 900 for nationwide coverage, although 2100 will work in cities.

The Vodafone NZ coverage maps shows where 3G 900/2100 coverage is deployed

Orange 3G extended 900mhz
Red 3G 2100mhz

Be like buying a car with a radio that only works when you're on a motorway.
