I have reset my nokia 5230 to recover memory and I notice in connectivity that the network is 2degrees.
Internet etc is still Vodafone. Does anybody know?

There is a 2degress site there, also Matamata.
Not sure if Cambridge site is live - most likely yes.
I know Matamata site is live.




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?

You're probably picking up the signal from Airport Road, Hamilton.

I happened to be walking around Cambridge on Saturday. I saw a portable cell site set up behind some shops in Victoria St. I pulled out my phone and sure enough, I had full bars of 2degrees. I don't know whether this cell was a 2degrees site or one of the other carriers, but I know it's there and that I definitely did have 2degrees coverage.

which shops or general area in Victoria is it? I will go and take a look.
I cant wait for Cambridge to be in 2degrees data zone. Do 2degrees publish a roll out of new sites?

Hi guys,

I can confirm it's a COW (cell on wheels).

We've got 7 of them dotted around the country at the following sites -

Matamata
Cambridge
Blenheim (3 sites)
Picton
Cromwell

These give more of our customers access to mobile broadband around New Zealand.

Cheers

We call them COWs because we can MOOVE them around.
