ok you will think i'm bad but...

Is a Vodafone sure signal able to use zero rated data on a vodem stick?

Why I'm asking is that my olds live in a hole with no cell phone coverage and no adsl, so about a year ago we put a vodem stick and used wifi to push it (vodem stick on hill) to there place and into the house. now I'm think about a sure signal in the house...

does any one know of any thing that could boost coverage for Vodafone cells, as i said they have full coverage 50m up the hill.
I did see some thing on trademe ages ago that would boost coverage over an area?

Any ideas any one?

freitasm: Any active solution for boosting coverage is illegal in New Zealand.


I had a guess about that.... Oh well that door is now shut and bolted.

Thanks for the help all.

It's not shut and bolted... There is nothing stopping you from getting an antenna booster.

Even the ones that Vodafone used to install for customers?

If your patents live in zero coverage then an approved mini repeater would be no good as it needs a signal to amplify

edit: spelling

I have constantly asked the VF CSR's about a solution for low signal areas, and they have never mentioned the possibility of a mini repeater, even though I suggested something along those lines.

Is it an enterprise solution only? Any info on your website?

Cheers

They are not installed in private houses / private property any longer due to issues getting them removed when coverage is improved in the area and also had issues with people selling them on auction sites

Is it for use in private property?

How many connection in this location?

Average spend per month for ALL connections excluding prepay?
