Thanks for all the info, it looks like uber is the way to go here and I will definitely be an interested party wanting a connection. I will find out about the nesrby farmers and getting access for a transmitter,I can also say you will need atleast two or porsibly three due to terrain. There is also Marine drive to contend with along the beach front and our neighbour next to us us perched on the side if the cliff and can see directly down the entire beach. I will talk to him, I often put my lpfm antenna there when running a hobby fm station over xmas and the signal goes for miles down the beach nearly to the kaipara entrance some 30km away. I also know quite a few locals here so will ask them if they are interested in uber. The are several hills which can be used for a main transmitter on different farms so a grumpy farmer shouldnt be a problem.

Does your friend on the hill get Vodafone 3G coverage?




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?
Geekzone special price: $150* for master splitter install, normally $200+ through your ISP. Auckland and Waikato areas.
*Travel charges may apply. Additional costs may apply for complex installs.

No its still a complete dead spot with absolutely nothing, we have to drive to the top of glinks road and sometime further to get any reliable vodafone signal. One of the neighbouring houses down the road and next to the beach who is fortunate enough to have broadband is running a suresignal, but it gets overloaded at times especially with lots of people on the beach. If we can get uber to provide an internet service then ill get a suresugnal too and just proxy it back via a vf bb line elsewhere

Don't think sure signal works like that, JR will surely advise.

Pretty sure sure signal will allow any 4 devices on it that are in range...so its possible.

Plus if the cabinet is getting hammered that wont help with call quality.

so that means the cell traffic must be metered, within the data plan the sure signal is connected on. I believed sure signal ran though a separate vlan, so that the traffic is unmetered. Then again stand to be corrected.

On Vodafones network they could unmeter it easily enough - theyd just run it iver is own vlan or ipsec tunnel and unmeter that traffic.

It would still be subject to end users connection congestion or backhaul congestion i should think.
