Hi everyone

We have some more cable network node upgrades tomorrow in Wellington. Details on Vodafone Community and below.



Hi everyone

Our cable broadband network in Wellington will be upgraded on Thursday 10 December. During the upgrade some areas may experience a brief outage to cable broadband service for around 15 minutes. In some cases it may take a little bit longer but we’ll do our best to get it done as quickly as possible. We apologise for any interruption, but it’s a necessary step in order to provide you with more capacity in the fastest possible way.

REGION     Node
Avalon      W02, W12
Kapiti        W80, W91, W93
Miramar     WKM
Upper Hutt W32
Burma       W22

If you are in one of the listed areas and your Vodafone cable internet connection stops working for longer than 15 minutes please follow these steps:


  • Turn your modem off at the power socket.
  • Wait 15 seconds.
  • Turn the modem back on.
  • Wait a few minutes for the connection to be restored.

Due to the nature of the work this schedule may potentially change, we’ll post further updates below this one when the work is completed. You may want to subscribe to this post to have updates emailed to you.

Thank you

Vodafone Operations

Can any Geekzoners on Wellington HFC give feedback on today's cable upgrades?

For me it was a non-event - no outage, and no performance change - I suspect that I'm not on one of the upgraded nodes.
