Because the RSM site has about 14 Vodafone locations using(or licensed) that spectrum. Some only just registered. Wondered if someone knew its use... Because I am just nosy.

Vodafone pushed for changes last year to the 3.5GHz band. They have (from memory) around 50MHz of ex TCL WiMAX spectrum. There were limits a number of restrictions incl FDD/TDD that have now been removed.

It's hardly surprising they're obviously about to launch a trial - this will be one of the next major global LTE bands. I've already discussed this in a number of threads on here since RSM announced the changes.

Was that from that home phone/mobile combo trial that TCL were doing in Tauranga that was aborted before it even got off the ground?

My understanding it was a 2100 Mhz 3G service, i could see the network on my 3G vodafone mobile just before they shut it down.

At that frequency it would be surely short range??

Short range - yes. That's exactly what is required for high capacity deployments these days. VF have plenty of other spectrum for larger coverage areas.

I'd guess one of the TDD LTE bands...

And slightly OT, Telstra (AU) still have 5 MHz of 2100 MHz spectrum here in New Zealand
