There was a thread on here just recently where I believe it was a Vodafone employee who stated that no NZ telco has yet received the Lollipop firmware from Samsung for testing.

So no ETA, gonna be a while longer yet.

Any update to this?
I see Poland and South Korea are now rolling out..
Will North Korea get it before we do? ;)

I believe that the German version of i9505 Samsung Galaxy S4 (Android 5.0 Lollipop) is now available.
You can flash that easily with guides on the Internet and Odin, using the 1.6GB German version, during setup just select English.
Make sure after install to remove the German pre-loaded apps (No root required), just drag and delete.
Download "Spark NZ" app to see mobile data use, updates are able to be accessed, and CF-Auto-Root can root (if you want to).

Link to German version: SamMobile Firmware - Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505

Hope this helps.

Already done that with the UK Firmware (not sure what company) and it has worked flawlessly for the past 3-4 days.
