No, good idea though. Will put that on the to-do list. There's so much data in the RSM database it's actually quite hard to best present it.

I use this one a bit: https://www.layar.com/layers/nzcelltowers/
But it seems to be a bit out of date now with a few towers missing.

Layar doesn't seem to play nicely with Android 4.3, image not working. Fail. Will have a play with some development but until I can actually make it work on my phone, gonna be working blind.

Works fine for me on S3 v4.1.2, but is better and more accurate (compass) on iPad.

I'm running CM on my S3, bleeding edge, has it's issues... iPad works mint, can spy the towers out the office window with that layer you linked, very cool.

Would be a great interface for all RSM data actually. Now I just need 50 hours in a day :)

Yes I think we all need those extra 50hrs:) Look forward to seeing anything you may come up with, but if it doesn't happen that's fine.

The Telecom 4G towers have filled out a bit more in existing areas of Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch (and one super site in Rotorua with 850, 1800, 2100 & 2600MHz), but that's it.

Vodafone appear to have beefed up the towers in the same areas as well. When Telecom were first registering frequencies it looked like they may have had the upper hand. Not anymore.

Another carrier I know already has a cell live in Rotorua with 4G 1800Mhz and 3G 900/2100Mhz Dual carrier 43Mbps

Wait for the Vodafone NZ 4G coverage map to be updated

That wouldn't be the "Vodafone: ROTORUA CENTRAL" tower would it? The one right next to Telecom's 4G tower? :P

Been a while since an update, but hasn't been much to update until now... Vodafone has adjusted just over 110 of their licenses since last week, including ~15 new licenses. Assuming they're going mental with LTE coverage due to Telecom's launch.

Map here - A lot more around Wellington, Auckland, Waiheke Island, a few around Christchurch and some out in the Boondocks as well.
