So sounds like those of us who want to snag a cool number might be better purchasing a sim rather than waiting for the Chinwag one.

ahmad: Wow 10 days delivery?!


You havent posted anything recently have you? That seems pretty common on standard post - fastpost not much better. I hope DSE do get my sims on the way to me on the 30th so that I can get the pick of numbers - otherwise I will just go into a dse and buy some since there are some numbers that I want to get if available.

I post stuff on a weekly basis. 10 days is extremely conservative even for NZ post.

So it's wrong, because it's 5th August...

FWIW, use Wikipedia with caution. It's a good source but I wouldn't use it as the ultimate source - it's certainly not authoritative in my view.

Is there live streaming of the press conference? If not, can freitasm please live blog it? Laughing Can we please tweet you questions to ask 2degrees?

Question for 2°: Would you be here if you didn't get that Maori spectrum?

I'm surprised by this because Wikipedia is not meant to be a 'gossip' website, everything is meant to be referenced back to something authoritative.

Not in an encyclopaedia. It's not a gossip site (as timestyles says). If it's a reference then it shouldn't have speculation - only facts.
