Good to see 4G rolling out in Tauranga. Looking forward to some decent coverage and a speedier network.

We're you trying to upload picture on 2G?




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Okay, I was thinking of taking the vodafone SIM and test if the coverage has improved... I shall wait further and keep using Telecom for now!

Any ideas on how much it roughly costs to upgrade one tower with all the latest technologies? 4G, Dual carrier, upgraded 3G, a lot of new gear going in each one.
