hey,
Tried to put my address into the "Set Your Location" but nothing ever works...
147 Kowhai Rd, Mairangi Bay
thats my address, any chance of knowing how far the exchange is from my house.
currently on Vodafone's 80g with phoneline + paying extra $30- to double the data but not liking the costs and my flat mates always going over the data within 2 week :O
would there be a transfer fee to go straight onto the $111- unlimited plan.
real keen.
thanks

If you put in 147 Kowhai Road, Auckland it works - full address on their picker is 147 Kowhai Road, Mairangi Bay, North Shore.  I had a similar issue trying to get my address validated - it's a bit hinky.

Edit - if you have a look at http://chorus.co.nz/sat you'll be able to see the area that your exchange/cabinet serves.  Your exchange is pretty big, but you'll be cabinetized to a fairly small area.

Just wondering if freitasm should censor the addresses above. Not the best idea to have your full address on the internet....

Privacy is over-rated.  It only took me 30 seconds to find your address - assuming you're still in the house with a green roof at #32...
