We moved mobile contract from Telecom to Vodafone about 6 months ago.
Our sales reps travel the length of NZ, so far we have had mainly bad feedback from them. Many spots where Telecom was fine are now dropping out on Vodafone. Coverage along the southern motorway towards Akl has been noticably worse, as has coverage within the CBD. The same problems are occuring all over NZ.
We have heard an explanaition that this is due to Vodafone and Telecom recently being forced by the government to sell off a percentage each of thier 2G bandwidth to a third party, and it has caused a lot of re-tuning needed between cells.
We have already talked extensively with Vodafone about this, and they say it's improving all the time. So far that is not the picture we are getting from our sales reps. Anybody else have views or experience on this?
