johnr: Already done with some 4G in Dunedin as well

Those DC maps are way out of date

Yep, I was just down at Pizza Hut on Hillside Rd and saw a 4G connection for the first time.

Oh happy days :)

The HD audio was live on Tuesday (noticably better). 4g appeared for me on Wednesday morning. Much improved signal, can spotify reliably in my office now. ( more signal bars rather than just better speed)

Speed is a bit hit and miss for me, ok in town but at cricket it was slow.

I'll enjoy it over the holidays and will be curious as to the effects of the returning masses in February . (Students)
