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.

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

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
