Which network is best for all round coverage? Telecom XT, 2degrees, Vodafone, or another?

I need to be able to upload data from my tablet. In particular,  Onehunga and Central Auckland/CBD area..

I'm using a Galaxy Tab PT1000. It's a T-Mobile one from the states I believe. it has a black back (the PT1000's often have a white back.. I dont know if this has any significance over determining its capabilities). It seemed to have issues with its data connectivity when I first tried it in Penrose, but sprang to life when I moved away from that area.

Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

You really need to establish the specs before you start looking at networks.

Being a US model for t-mobile I'd pick it will probably only support the 2100Mhz and AWS bands meaning it is no use for XT which uses the 850MHz band.

Based on your comment I'm picking you put a XT SIM in it and it only worked when it saw a 2100MHz XT cellsite, which are designed for infill coverage only.
