Is there a list somewhere of current and planned RBI mast sites with exact position and estimated go live dates.
I tried calling Vodafone but they could not help.
I can see a mast going up out of my window a few km away (Summerhill, nr Oxford, SI) but not sure what it is.

I'd like to know as that possibly effects where on the roof I put and antenna (happy for poor performance now if I know it will get better in a few months)

Thanks

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?

I was so excited when I got the "vodafone are waiting to connect you now" letter this week, only to be gutted it's only onto RBI... $95 for 15Gb... We ARE in 2014 aren't we?

On the Vodafone NZ community I post when new sites are unlocked / live to customers

http://community.vodafone.co.nz/t5/Mobile-Broadband/New-Mobile-Coverage/m-p/124003#U124003

Site names stay up for about 8 weeks before they are removed off the community

There are other providers too. You can get 30GB for $99.

You could enjoy the beach instead of being stuck in front of the tube. Maybe do a day trip out to the DVD store :)
