I agree, vote with your wallet

I switched to 2degrees and haven't had a problem since,
I also know of others who will be switching to 2d/vodafone once contracts are over
This is all due to these data issues that never get fixed

Did the switch today. The difference is like when I first went from dial up to dsl.

Having 4G is really nice, no longer need to go away and make a drink while I wait for a page to load.

Lol did you ask yourself what took you so long?




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

This is pretty standard for the telecom data connection these days in Otago,
This was taken in the centre of Cromwell with both networks showing similar levels of coverage (3/4)
Pages instantly load on 2degrees, telecom more often they don't

It's pretty useless in Invercargill too. Data connection is constantly dropping, thought it was my custom ROM at first but went back to stock and still doing it. Swapped SIMs with my work phone (Vodafone) and worked fine.

Wow so its not just me? I tend to have no issues at home in Windsor, but when at work in middle of town mobile data can be super slow, or just not respond to requests at all :/ 




If you have to run heating in winter, you don’t own enough computers.

Try it at 7 in the morning. Should be super fast if it's congestion

Yeah I have also had slow speeds invercargill when travelled for work

While Cromwell speeds can be slow, I will give telecom credit for my earlier post that compared 2d and telecom in cromwell, turns out the cell tower was on fire!
