Coverage looks broad south of the city, but most of the city isn't covered. I assume this is a topographical limitation?



Regardless, I'm interested to know what the DC rollout plans are in this area. I know there is a lot of network upgrade activity planned and happening, but what is the plan for Christchurch? Full DC-HSPA coverage eventually? Or will the current DC coverage map stay essentially the same until Christchurch gets 4G?

With LTE coverage coming 2G / 3G / 4G is all in the same RAN (Single RAN) This will include DC 43 Mbps

Thanks John. My interpretation of your posts is that yes, DC coverage will be expanded, but this expansion will come when the 4G rollout kicks off in Christchurch, with DC coverage expansion matching the 4G coverage.

As 4G is on 1800Mhz the coverage foot print will not be the same due to 3G on 900Mhz,

I am not across the detailed roll out plans for 4G either
