There were many reports and speed tests of Iphone using the Vodafone network several months ago and initial problems with low speeds almopst of x2 dial up speeds. Seemingly speeds stuck at around 116 kbps.
Tonight i am at work-Waikato Hospital and I am getting speeds tonight of 1.825 mbps download and 336 upload. This is definitely the fastest ive experienced on their network so far.
Fastest before was over by the Hamilton Railway station at around 1.7 Mbps.
Near my home Near Te Rapa/Pukete I was maxing out 500-600 kbps I will test this again tomorrow morning. So looks like there recent tweaking has been paying dividents-at least for here in hamilton

My speeds have plummeted precipitously since August. I routinely used to get 800 kbps download from my office in Dunedin, but it has been between 100 and 200 kbps for over a month. Uploads are near full speed at 350 kbps. The upshot is that streaming video is a non-starter for me. Other areas of Dunedin show similar drops in download speeds, with the curious exception of Anderson's Bay where I can get 1.1 Mbps download, but nowhere else in the city.

The 116 kbps problem apparently was fixed for downloads in late August, and more recently (perhaps in the last week) for uploads.
