It took sometime, but 4G is here in Johnsonville with Vodafone.

Shame the signal strength is still weak (1 km line of sight to the mall, top of hill):



And the obligatory speedtest (Nokia Lumia 1020):

What's the 4G signal strength of your old provider, Telecom in your house?

How is your 3G coverage? There are 3G sites on the other side of the hill that should deliver much better coverage than the main J'ville site, but these don't have LTE yet.

Don't be surprised if 4G and the stronger 3G goes away looks like the site is unlocked for some testing and could be locked back down again

Interesting. Why would you use 4G at home when you can use much cheaper WiFi?

Ah yes, I can see how you'd want 20Mbps data for that 10 minute walk, 5Mbps just wouldn't do ;)
