When I read the release I started a FB messenger thread with Spark trying to get into the act - I am really not sure the staff on the ground have a clue about the release. As has been pointed out the motorhome community have been using a Voda version of this thru either Netspeed or Wireless Nation for over a year now.  Because of my fixed location and the fact that even VDSL is  s l o w, I adopted Sparks 4G wireless service over a year ago. I am currently very tempted to go to the NS option, as I am a motorhomer and the advantage of having the equiv service in the MH and then using same in the house is very desirable. When Spark announced this it seemed sensible to stay with Spark. I contacted them trying to get a service of equiv data and price as what NS was offering. Since then, Spark have been totally confused about what their own organisation is trialling. My current Spark service utilises a Huawei B315 which is the same router NS and WN use - all I want is someone to unlock geolocking....

Probably worth requoting the original release.

 

Spark is the first major New Zealand telecommunications provider to trial portable wireless broadband.

 

noting the bold ofcourse..

Unfortunately the 100 have already been chosen. Internally there was potential for knowledge, but you can never control who actually reads everything.
