Nothing new here service wise, so this is posted just for fun :-)

I live in a small farm cottage, approx 6 m by 14 m, located on top of a small hill.

Over recent time my old T39 cell phone connected to no less than 5 sites as per cell information.

Hamilton
Morrinsville
Mystery Creek
Karapiro
Deanwell

Can anyone guess my location?

The Black Vodafone helicopters already know where you are Cool




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

To triangulate we would need to know either:  a) the bearing to each cell site, or b) the time differential to calculate the distance to each site.  Have you got those parameters? 

Coffeebaron is probably right though!
