Well that's sure a change from 'We have none in stock right now but expect more soon'

Nope not even related, I would say they want the 5Mhz used for Sure Signal for 4G capacity

 

@JasonParis Maybe he could tell us more and the reason why?

I have family members using these in areas where VF coverage is poor, surprised they are doing this!

 

Even have one in the office (Bunker)

There will be many of these out there for years to come, so can't see them grabbing that slice anytime soon; unless it can work alongside SS, in which case why would that be a reason to abandon it?

 

 





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?

Pretty gutted on behalf of our rural customers. I've advised the helpdesk to start promoting 2degrees Wi-Fi Calling as an alternative.

We have been waiting for 3 months for one to become available for a customer. Anyone have one they want to sell?

I love my SureSignal, no point having a mobile here without one.

 

Do I need to employ a security guard for it now? :)

 

 





Life is too short to remove USB safely.

This is what I was told when trying to order some sure signals.

 

 

Also, last time I checked trademe Sure Signals were selling for a heck of a premium

Are all versions of the Sure Signal capable of operating off any internet connection or only the latest one?

Oh man, been waiting for them to come back into stock so we could switch from 2degrees and wifi calling! :(

 

Guess we will have to stick with the unreliable wifi calling... (at least it's unreliable for us here)

Well that's not ideal - I guess if mine dies, the only real option will be to move the family to 2degrees. Wish I had upgraded to the v3 while I had the chance.
