Hi Folks,

No mobile coverage today at home in Pukekohe. Very strange with 3 vodafone mobiles not registering. Nothing appearing on the forums. We are on the eastern side of Pukekohe. Anyone else with issues?

Cheers, Matt.

I wasn't having any issues earlier today but it no longer appears to be sending messages.
Currently located next to the town hall - Pukekohe.

Another member of staff also mentioned they were having issues.

Thanks John, all seems to back to normal. I would have thought as part of planned work it would have gone in network outages on the vodafone website. The call centre did say people had been ringing all day. It might have reduced their load a bit if it was linked from the network status page.

Does this mean I have to buy an LTE phone now? ;-)

Cheers.

Hi John I used to get 16+ Mbps on my iPhone 5 before the upgrade yesterday (I reside in Pukekohe East), now I get 6 Mbps. What gives? Have they finished the upgrade or what?

By the way guys this upgrade was advertised in the local rag.

Is this part of the RBI or does that come later?
