plambrechtsen: 700Mhz range is still "owned" by the RSM / Analogue TV Channels and the auction hasn't occurred yet (unless I missed something in the media).

Did you miss the memo? They had the auction early. Only JohnR turned up and scored the lot for $1




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Pretty excited about it but are we going to see a range of data sticks being launched or have Telecom phased them out in favour of tethering mobile phones?

I'm curious to know what ADSL  routers will support the new Telecom 4G data sticks??

Someone at Telecom - you'd probably want to check http://help.telecom.co.nz/app/answers/detail/a_id/26644/ and the way it displays on a phone (see pic attached) - probably I shouldn't be able to see the account number and the need to run a P9 credit check..

On a side note, good on you guys for making LTE free. I'm porting across my (+wife) prepaid number after having used XT for the last 10 months on my business mobile. I'm buying a 5C when in Sydney next week. Can someone please confirm if I'll need a new sim as I bought a nano sim and got it delivered last week.

EDIT: It wouldn't upload the picture from my iPad:

Is 4G on Telecom available on the mobile broadband plans, i.e. for Ipads etc?

It says all plans, so should be. Presumably there's simply no checking done at all and the system will let anyone on there.

Anyone with a 4G enabled SIM of course.

They're going to be busy for a week or three doing SIM swaps!




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

That reminds me... does anyone know whether all new SIMs will be 4G-compatible? For example, if I buy a new iPhone when they're released then I'll end up with a new, smaller SIM. Would I still need to go through the 4G upgrade process or would the new one already be 4G-compatible?

Looks like this has already been fixed. But yes you shouldn't be seeing that =/

We will supply 4G sims with all 4G compatible devices.

For those with Telecom sourced 4G handsets with 4G locked out can they expect OTA's to remedy this in the near future?

Did you have a particular handset in mind? I'm not aware of any handsets that fall into those categories but I could certainly look into it.

Haven't all the 4G capable devices that have been sold had their 4G disabled

The ones I know about:
Nokia Lumia 625
Nokia Lumia 920
Nokia Lumia 1020

My understanding from discussions on here was as per Nathan that all telecom supplied 4G handsets had the LTE bands locked out, my Nokia 920 definitely did and I am sure my HTC One did too however i cannot check as I have since flashed a different rom of which i know has the 4G bands enabled
