Hi there,


We will be moving house in the new year. The problem is I know that Spark cellphone coverage is non existent in this new place - apparently Vodafone work


We are currently with Spark for Naked internet and cell phones.  Spark (according to their website) provide ADSL to our soon to be new address.


I would prefer to stay with Spark.


Just wondered what my options are (if any) to try and avoid swapping out to another cell phone provider.

Slightly off topic - but 2 Degrees announced Wifi Calling yesterday(?). 


As I understand it, compatible 2 Degrees phones can operate per normal if they have a wifi signal (once Wifi Calling has properly rolled out), but otherwise have no cellphone signal.  So if you have Spark internet, and get some really good Wifi routers set up, I understand you should be able to get whole house coverage on a 2 Degrees mobile phone even if there is otherwise no cellphone signal.

All three networks have this solution: 


Vodafone also have: 


And as above, 2degrees now (well almost) have 



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?
