Im considering getting vodafone bb and a repeater installed at our bach where there is absolutely NO cellphone coverage unless you drive 1km to the top of the road, to be more exact "Glinks Gully"

Another bach just down the hill from us has one and everyone over xmas including me I must admit was standing outside their bach and using it from time to time.

Now a question I have, do these vodafone repeaters support whitelists of imie numbers?  If I get one installed at our bach and pay a good few hundred for it then I don't want everyone else overloading it when we want to use it.  There are 6 other baches in close proximity to ours.  From what ive heard these devices can only handle upto 6 phones at a time? maybe johnr could shed some light on this.

Sure Signal the unit is called and they are open for any Vodafone NZ subscriber to attach to the mobile data usage does not come off your fixed line cap

The Sure signal unit can handle 4 or 8 subscribers depending on which unit you get

FYI the Sure Signal unit is not a repeater it's a actual mini low powered site
