I'm having real trouble following your post and understanding what you are trying to say.

Are you trying to ask a question?

I know Havelock well, and its not a big place. If a cellular issue in a tiny south island community gets fixed inside a week, then I would be counting my lucky stars.

At least its not the middle of summer.

yes i know but i don't give a dam just becuase we are a small place doesn't make our business any less important then yours and or any one else's telecom should have spare parts on hand. and im surprised that they arent monitoring the site towner to know if it is working well or not they relie on someone to call them and tell them about it they are the main service provider in new zealand  and are worth millions

The cold hard facts are that if the density of users per tower isnt there (and therefore the return on investment is less), then in fact your business (by that, I mean your spend with Telecom) is always going to be less important than say, a tower in the middle of a big city.

What makes you say they weren't monitoring it?

A alarm does not show for every single fault on a cell and it sounds like you expect telecom to keep a spare cell on site. I wonder if that would put costs up and i wonder who would be the first to complain on forums.
