johnr:
dickytim: At home on Patumahoe I am now getting around 13mb/s I will test at work where it has previously been quite slow


Patumahoe Dual carrier went live this morning

John


It did indeed!

Ran a speed test on Saturday on Hunter Road Patumahoe

Ping: 30
Down: 23.34
Up:4.29

I am impressed, I haven't used it to give a real world impression of what the higher speed does for me as I prefer to us my "free" wifi at home rather than chew thru my data!

when my next block starts I'll have a play around and see what the difference between my home broadband that gets 6-8mbps and dual carrier on 23-24mbps.




I know a little more than nothing but not much...

Would be great to see 4G coverage integrated into this map tool too!

coffeebaron:
johnr: I am guessing U900 43Mbps dual carrier

What do I win if I am correct?

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


Prize time Waima is now complete Dual carrier on U900 and U2100 43 Mbps DC is live and GSM / 2G is coming as well but this part is still locked down for a short time
