There has been this annual event that tends to mean that people like to take breaks. Plus most telcos have a change freeze over this period.

I'm sure things will crack back into it in the next few weeks when people come back.

Yep






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?

I wonder when sites like Te Miro and Piarere are going to be switched on.

Probably over next few weeks, now that workers are back and brown out is over.
I'm guessing you live somewhere in Waikato area too?

Hi Davsri, 

We did go on a big blitz in the lead up to Christmas and the New Year because it's always a busy time, especially for areas that don't get a lot traffic ordinarily. Looks like we had a pretty good results over the holidays as a result :)

We're taking the opportunity now to focus on some high priority sites and on our underlying work on our network and equipment, so before too long we'll be looking to turn on larges swathes of LTE700 again very soon! 

We normally round up the latest on our network on a weekly-ish basis on our corporate twitter account @sparknzltd too if you're interested, but always happy to answer any questions i can here!

Cheers! ^Sam
