I work at alot of shipping ports around NZ and trying to find out which TELCO has the best 3G coverage? I'm currently using a TELECOM T-Stick.

How long is a piece of string? Seriously, there is no correct answer to your question.

Every network has strong coverage areas and poor coverage areas. Instead of asking who has the best coverage you probably need to establish where you want to use your phone, and what network best suits your needs.

Telecom has great coverage and is pure 3G but as Steve said it depends on where you're going. But I would put the Pepsi challenge down that our coverage will be better with more stable data sessions.

Depends on your device quite a bit.




I work for Spark, but as always my views are my own.

Probably Telecom XT or a MNVO who uses that network. If you have problem with signal you may want to consider a modem you can sue an external antenna with.

utilize their online coverage maps for areas you frequent, but furthermore look at Bartenders cell site maps to see where physical tower locations are too, if you want to get a bit more technical. Around coastal areas the positioning of a tower can be the difference between a dead spot and usable signal, and this can't always been seen on coverage maps. Keep in mind there are many other factors involved as well as tower location.
