I don't have line of site to newtown, although it is only 5 minutes walk way. I have a view of island bay, and the cook strait beyond. if there is a cellsite in island bay, i'm not recieving it.

The one place in wellington that has bad coverage and i think ought to be a priority to fix, is the Railway station. I'm sure the electified overhead wires don't help, nor does having thousands of cellphones in one place, but Telecom cellsites handle this no problem, while vodafone doesn't do nearly as well.

The Island Bay site is on the old hardware store. Might be interesting to see if the new panels that went on it this morning make any difference.

Vodafone installed a brand new site around 18 months or so on Rutherford House to give coverage to the railway stn and I've never encountered a problem there since. Where you meaning the railway station in general or somewhere specific?

i lived in petone until about a year ago - so my railway station statement might be out of date now :-) :-S
good to know things have improved -

the other "important" location (vogeltown doesn't matter much) is the terrace. that also was very patchy for gsm coverage last time i check. - any improvements recently?
