TrueNet needs 20 volunteers on Vodafone to be panellists on our testing and reporting project. (a mix of Fibre, ADSL & VDSL for Vodafone) 


We have a new contract with the Commerce Commission to continue testing and reporting.  There are some changes though, and as a result we now need more Vodafone Fibre 100 or 200Mb/s, ADSL and VDSL panelists.  It would be great if you are on DSL and your area is not going to get fibre for a couple of years to help us to keep our DSL numbers up.  


We also need some more Christchurch Cable 100Mb/s panelists.




Please volunteer here, the link takes you to our FAQ to assist you to see what you get from us - GigE router with double reach Wifi -  




Our probe - the wifi is recommended for use.  MikroTik RB/951G-2HnD - with our firmware installed so it is not a "free" router

I've had fibre for just 1 day, and have volunteered.


How soon before we know if we have been selected?

Life is too short to remove USB safely.

You need to complete the two stages of registration, i.e. your name and email, then the second is after I check you are not a spammer to fill in your connection details.  We are going to be a little slow due to workloads, but hopefully within a week.  


Our new probes are coded with new firmware and labeled so it could be quick
