 2600Mhz?

 

Just curious why, just to offer more coverage?

It's actually to offer less coverage (in a manner of speaking). Higher frequencies don't travel as far, therefore a high-frequency tower has fewer users, therefore the average speed per user increases. That's an oversimplification but it's the gist of it.

Actually they have 4 bands, maybe more. I believe they are doing some testing in the 3.5GHz band too :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

So I guess if Vodafone wanted to get innovative they could start attaching micro-cell sites to power poles then piggy back using their HFC network to provide more coverage and capacity in built up urban areas.

For the very same reason they have 2 x GSM bands and 2 x 3G bands and for the very same reason Spark also have 700,1800 and 2600 for LTE and why Spark want to acquire 2300MHz spectrum.

 

Capacity, coverage and performance (in no particular oder). Bonding 3 x carriers (which Vodafone have been trailling) also delivers some pretty imnpressive speed.

In light of the cable congestion thread, that was a good laugh!
