There have been reports in our local press about a new Vodafone RBI site in Kumeu North, but I can't find any specifics on the location.

I'm hoping that this expansion might finally mean I have some alternative reception at home. The current Kumeu Transmitters are just too far away to be really usable (ie under 1 bar reception).

The most recent activity I can find in the SMART database is co-location on the KUMEU TOWNSHIP site along side telecom and 2degrees.

Can anyone on Vodafone comment on exacat location an potential range.

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their ADSL broadband network faster. Why not spend a couple of hundred to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Cheers. About 5.5 Km but the elevation could work for us.

Hopefully it might help fill the blackspot in Waimauku township too

Well it looks likes Vodafone are loading up plenty of new license requests based on using Vodafone as the Licensee under
- http://www.rsm.govt.nz/smart-web/smart/page/-smart/domain/licence/SelectLicencePage.wdk?fromHome=Yes

I can't seem to see any additional allocations around the Kumeu area.

Has anyone got a good way to turn the map locations from the Smart database into a location under Google Maps or similar?

With mobile competition increasing at the moment it would be great to have some descent options.

Anyone picked up on an update or an RSM SMART allocation for the site yet?
