I have Telecom NZ 14.0.  Can I upgrade this without installing iOS 7?


If the update didn't appear when you went to settings -> general -> about, then No, you will need to udpate to IOS7 first.




My comments and remarks are not necessarily of my employer.

w2krules: No 4G yet on my iPhone 5.  Do I need to upgrade to iOS 7 to get 4G, or is it just that it hasn't been enabled yet where I am (Royal Oak)?


Yes - you also need to also have Carrier - Telecom NZ 15.6 on your iPhone5 for LTE Cellular data to be available [settings -> general -> about].


I have Telecom NZ 14.0.  Can I upgrade this without installing iOS 7?


Plug it into your PC with itunes on it and the carrier file might update on the handset


Thanks, but I'm updating to iOS 7.  I will have to do it eventually...

eXDee: Looking forward to this taking the load off the 3G network. I'd like to request everyone buy 4G phones and 4G be rolled out everywhere, thanks :D


Then the LTE network will be as slow as the 3G network..


how did you come to this conclusion?


It's a shared resource.  The more you use the less there is for everyone else..

Correct but 4G is way more efficient with this resource over 3G

Paulthagerous: May only get 1 bar at home but at my secret testing spot it is going quite well. Only wish I had a Cat4 device to test instead of the Cat3 S4 Mini lol.



Surely this is an incorrect result?! One bar of 4G and you've technically exceeded the download capability of a Cat 3 device!

4G signal is weaker than 3G (only 2/5 dots) but still almost 25 Mbps.  But most impressive is the ping at 24 ms, which is shorter than our broadband.  Looks like a data upgrade will be needed.

Sorry, guess I should have been clearer.

1 bar is at home.  Results are 25-35 mb/s down and 10-15 mb/s up

At the spot I got this result I would have been 100-150 metres away from the cell tower.

The screenshot was taken at home, but is of a test at the 2nd site.

As to technically breaking the speed barrier, I wonder if it is a slight inaccuracy of the speedtest app or if, unlike other technologies I can think of, the max speed is a little conservative and can actually be attained....

The Cat3 standard actually provides for 102Mbps downlink and 51Mbps uplink, rather than the more rounded numbers of 100/50 often given.

All 4G devices get 4G as long as you have a 4G sim.

jeffnz: anyone on custom roms getting the 4G. I have it selected by still nothing, not a biggie but interested in keeping up with the Jones's


Running the latest Cyanogen Mod on my Xperia Z C6603, it wouldn't connect to any 4G until about an hour of me being in a coverage zone, and after multiple reboots. I also thought it may be something to do with the custom rom but glad it works now. I did change it to LTE/WCDMA in preferred mode, but it seems to reset to LTE/WCDMA/GSM every time I reboot, not sure if thats a bug or feature but look for that option.
