I'm surprised that no NZ networks have introduced voLTE.

 

I wouldn't hold your breath - 700MHz still haven't made their way into urban centres because apparently 1800MHz in a hilly environment like the Hutt Valley is a fantabulous idea.

NZ is so behind the times.

@kawaii: Incorrect over the last few weeks VodafoneNZ has been turning on L700 in Auckland CB right out across to Penrose / Papatoetoe , Glendowie and other areas can't remember them all

Also turning on CA over the 700 / 1800 on these sites and CA on the 1800 band of 20Mhz + 5Mhz

I'm over in Naenae as well - well, in Avalon near the Naenae college which unfortunately places me in this dead zone between towers when it comes to all the carriers that I've tried :-( One of the reasons I've scrapped the idea of using Skinny Broadband because I'm lucky to get 'one dot' on my iPhone since most of the time it sits on 3G regardless of whether I'm on 2 Degrees, Vodafone or Spark/Skinny.

Vodafone turned on a new 2G / 3G / 4G coverage site today (Not RBI) in Methven so this kind of shows that 2G must be around for a while longer

Edit: 4G locked down for now

Is 3G (and maybe 4G) coverage going to mirror 2G before 2G is decommissioned?

UMTS 900 MHZ is available in most coverage areas now.

Carriers enabling VoLTE is no proof of it being successful. Carriers are deploying RCE as well.

3G would have to for sure but 4G is getting built out quite fast

Vodafone and 2degrees builds in the Hutt Valley were engineered for 2100 coverage - that's why they have a lot more sites than Spark.

All good - I know of a few areas that get great 2G signal and marginal-to-nil 3G.

Possibly depends on the handset - there are still a lot of ones that lack 900MHz 3G in use by people.
