Hi,i'm gonna be purchasing the Nexus 4 and it supports DC HSDPA+. Will it be able to utilise vodafones DC network?
I ask because it is not on the supported devices.

No I am purchasing it unlocked from 2Degrees and it is not in vodafone stores(to my knowledge) so will the nexus 4 still run on DC even though its not officially supported?

Nevermind I understand, hoping for some pretty sweet speeds!!

Firebreak, I have a Google US purchased Nexus 4 and it rocks on VF.  I haven't tried anything beyond Youtube in terms of data throughput but can go find a speedtest server and let you know what it will do, if that helps?

Hi thanks, I got my Nexus from the US imported actually and with DC I have hit 15mb/s at most places I go to but thanks for the offer anyway.

This is my best effort with a Nexus 4, granted this is on 2Degrees, in Dunedin, so I'm pretty sure there's no DC there.

That was sitting outside the casino (Waiting to pick the mrs up from work - I don't gamble) at about 10pm on a Friday night, so it's not like nobody else would have been on the cell

Indeed, I'm pretty stoked with it anyway. I'd chuck the SIM in from my work mobile (vodafone) but it's not a microSIM >_<

How do you upload pics? I'm getting 21mbps down on HSDPA 42, it's depressing because my house only gets 2mbps.
