So what's the big Vodafone upgrade this weekend. Post your speculation here.

Hitting the LTE switch?

U900?




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?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

I am guessing U900 43Mbps dual carrier

What do I win if I am correct?

There is certainly plenty of speculation doing the rounds about Vodafone and LTE also..

Is there an approximate time over the weekend it goes live, or will it come on in stages?

Have Vodafone said whether they plan to do the same across other cities? I have awful Vodafone 3G coverage at home (Wellington northern suburbs), but 2G coverage from the same site (just around the crest of a hill) is great, so 3G on 900MHZ would probably work (and would save me having to buy a femtocell).

You only get a prize once I have tested off the Waima site in Parau.

Excellent. Once this is in all areas such as all of Hamilton, then i'll highly consider vodafone as an option in the future.
