Who said they haven't? Have any of you called NZ Comms to ask?

I haven't - I'm simply asking.

I was under the impression that the 800 and 900 bands were never designed to operate together in the same area since one is the old amps channels, and one is the old tacs channels which were from opposite sides of the atlantic.

Anyway, telecom were royally crapped over for ages when bellsouth first launched from transmissions on poorly filtered GSM handsets to the point that you couldnt be on an analog phone within 30-40 meters of a GSM user till they did something to improve it. It would be disappointing if this is not something that can be resolved.

Why does vf care anyway, just re-direct all the customer complaints into the big black hole where the rest of the correspondance from customers goes, never to be heard from again...

12 days before the network goes live convenient isnt it? I'd be ashamed to be a vodafone customer and if I was one (which I definitely am not) I'd be seriously thinking about dumping them given this shonky behaviour

I think the feedback / comments from this thread tells Vodafone one thing about how their customers are feeling - shape up or ship out cuz Telecom may rise out of the coffin and finally do something great with their mobile business.

Telecom is a big company and sure, they have had their fair share of ups and downs over their broadband business. Look at them now, most customers are happy with their broadband service. And what's even better is that you can get through to their call centre fairly promptly AND not have to pay for service! Oh, did I mention, you also speak to someone local? I believe Telecom will look after their customers are a lot better than Vodafone (if they don't, they haven't done their homework).

"Sorry, it is past 6pm, we can no longer go into your account details until tomorrow morning" days are nearly over.

What I want to know is how can Voda be so sure the interference is being caused by Telecom? the answer to this will really dictate whether their injunction actually has a leg to stand on or if it is simply a case of them being a morally bankrupt mobile monopolist desperately trying to avoid same-same competition.

At the end of the day if it turns out that there aren't any real grounds for an injunction against Telecom, Vodafone run the very real risk of customers leaving in disgust. So how about vodafone puts its injunction where its mouth is and share the proof that makes them so sure Telecom is at fault.
