So all Vodafone needs to do now is introduce Wifi Calling so people have less reason to be upset about the increase in roaming charges

They just need to catch back up to Spark now and finish upgrading their non 4G cell sites.




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?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

AFAIR I think already mentioned on Geekzone, RBI2 required VoLTE so the other carriers will have it running very shortly too.

This is great, but can someone explain to me why features like this never seem to make it beyond a few select models of phone? Wifi calling from 2d seems to be the same, even the emergency alerts from civil defense. These are all industry standards, right? My phone surely has support for all of these features, even though I purchased it from a store other than my carrier, right? Why can't it just be turned on for everyone, once the carrier has confirmed it's working to spec on the network side?

 

 

 

(Honestly the only feature of those I care about is the emergency alert system, It'd be pretty pathetic to die in a disaster because I didn't pay 'Carrier price' for my phone).

Does this mean they can turn 4g up so that it stops falling back to useless 3g all the time?

Vodafone have updated their coverage map, 4G is now a single option (instead of picking a flavour) and a new option for "4G Voice". Currently only from Albany down to Birkenhead and east to all the bays.

 

The fine print mentions you need to be on a compatible plan also but nothing mentions on any plans I briefly looked at

And how long before it is switched on for RBI Phone users I wonder? It's a nuisance dropping back to 3G every time a voice call is in progress.
