"Telecom's network capability manager Tonie De Vries says the economics of bringing fast mobile services to areas outside of the main centres have been challenging, but the reallocation of the 700MHz spectrum will speed up the roll-out significantly."
But, telecom have not rolled out to some main centres yet, let alone outside. eg, Hamilton, Tauranga, Palmy... no 4g yet. They stick out like a sore thumb on the interactive map.
I've been a telecom customer for a few years now. But with their slow UFB rollout and now 4G i'm just thinking maybe it is time to give vodafone another try? Vodafone just seems a bit more agile at the moment.
I wonder how telecom prioritises the 4g rollout. Obviously spectrum availability comes first, but after that? Obviously not solely decided on population/market size.
