jcr976 - you do realise that the explantion of 3G that you referred to earlier was just a quote from Vodafone's website, right? Just purely to show that they are STILL quoting early 2005.

Either way, I fully appreciate that it's no easy task rolling out the new system - it's just difficult to make business plans when they keep shifting the dates as well.

I agree with Vodafone's recent comments that there isn't much point releasing it until there is compelling content for "Joe Public", but it would be good for them to allow access to the technology for those of us that are prepared to accept it "as is".

And sbiddle - thanks for the dates for oktoberfest!

Point taken but I find it amazing you make business plans around vodafone NZs 3G network roll out cause there has never been an offical date for launch set yet.

Don't get me wrong - we haven't made firm business plans. UMTS is purely on the "Add support for it asap" list.

I guess we were silly to assume when they (ie Business Support, website etc) said that it would be available early 2005, that it would in fact be available then (ie before June/July).

There's plenty of other features that our customers want in the mean time, so I'll definitely be able to keep busy 8-).

There is a small story in the Dominion Post this morning about the Auckland City Council giving Vodafone consent for new 3G sites. The story goes on to mention a July launch.

Which is the date I always had in mind, seeing that this is what they promissed.
