kharris: I don't seem to get LTE in Central Lower Hutt.  I have an iPhone 5 and have the 4G add-on as part of my plan but am still seeing the 3G symbol instead of LTE. In the settings I have enabled the LTE option and the mobile data APN is www.iphone-vodafone.net.nz. 

Am I missing something?


The site probably hasn't been upgraded or LTE unlocked yet. Not all cellsites in the region have been upgraded yet.

Thanks Steve.  Are you aware of anywhere that does work so I can test it? I just had my plan upgraded so I'm not convinced it is working.

Also, do you know if the APN is the correct one?

You use the default iPhone APN for 4G access, If you would like me to check DM me your mobile number

For other devices that would use the APN ' www.vodafone.net.nz ' this needs to be changed to ' vodafone '

Many areas of the Wgtn CBD are working, and I believe Petone is.
