I couldn't help but notice some new equipment staring to appear on a handful of Telecom sites around the Hutt Valley. I wonder if they're redeploying their AMPS network again? Smile

Hint: It's not the 2100MHz panel on the left or the 850MHz panel on the right.

EDIT: As of the 6th December Telecom have officially announced their LTE trial. More details are here

Is it perhaps equipment being used for a LTE trial in the 1800MHZ band and 2100MHZ band.

4G is on it's way ... Interesting that Telstras 4G in OZ is slower than VF NZ's DC H+ network :D
