All 5G towers will include extra radiation to also charge your mobile wirelessly when in coverage.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

joker97: Gosh just realised it was someone's first post to criticise people off asking about cell phone reception on a beach :p that's as oxymoron as it gets :p


Well yes, the very 1st post but not intended to criticize people. just advising people, that if you are not happy with what you have then switch.

As far as I remmember, this post was started to complain about the reception on a beach, but if you cant get my logic then no further comments.

Tesla already invented that!
(But the NIMBY's will make a fuss and get it shut down and then complain about crap wireless signal and their batteries running dry all the time)

I put the patent through Biddle Corp, so I won't be the one getting sued when everyone gets cancer.

Still reading JonR?

Moving out to a new subdivision north of Kaiapoi soon, and suspicion was theres only the primary tower in Kaiapoi township itself given the low signal (1 bar if lucky) and perferred 3G/GPRS data standing outside the house in the street facing mecca :)

Seems to be backed up by the map here http://dl.dropbox.com/u/22487235/Address.html pulled from known public data.

When you enter williams st, kaiapoi and scroll north to see the soverign blvd area at present it shows a st and not much else.  Given there are about 2300 new sections planned, do these sort of areas get looked at by the telcos for potential addition of towers, or being out of the main centre do they remain status quo until the likes of the RBI, or other options are applied for by enough bodies.

I'm hopefull that even though only 2 areas are going to be UFB ready and remainder BoF for the time being, that cell networks are still looked at and not overlooked until fixed networks are accessable.

Have you looked at the RBI page I have linked to on the Vodafone NZ site? 4th post in this thread

I sorta did yes, and from what I can gather its an extension of current networks using cabinets where possible or localised WIFI towers etc and APs at the home to let you tap in for broadband data extensions?

But was more wondering about the voice side of things, given you get either no service or unable to connect calls (on my SGS (1)) until I disappear down the road a bit and get a few more bars of signal from the local tower :)

Or have I missed something in the reading, and its likely to include its own mini-tower at some point in the future to cover the current black hole (since its not really.. rural or isolated as such but more an very fast ex-pad redzone area expanding township)

Cause the entire subdivision only seems to be listed under final cover/pink zone which is a long way down the track

Sorry not sure how you came to that conclusion to be honest, RBI coverage is just mobile coverage from a normal cell site Voice / data / SMS

6th post in the thread links off to some of the new RBI sites that have recently gone live or unlocked in testing phase
