Hey can any one confirm that Vodafone has indeed launched 3g in Hanmer Springs and if so is it 900MHZ and 2100mhz or just 900mhz.

Also any other areas in the South Island that it is working?

Why is the 3G maps online always out of date? Will Vodafone ever get around to maintaining this list on a regular basis?
 
his is very important information when deciding to refer a customer to a Vodafone data card or a Telecom data card. This will be even more important once you have 900 3G (officially), as this will affect what we deploy in rural areas.

I agree. The map had might as well be taken away as it is probably doing more harm than good!!

How difficult can it be to have a reasonably accurate coverage map.

I expect there is a database with the GPS coords and specification of every cell site in the country, plot them on a map with an average radius of coverage circle plotted around them.

You could almost do it with google maps, but plotting a circle on google isn't really possible yet as far as I know.
