Now I can get a good fix of coffee from www.redcherrycoffee.co.nz and surf the web on my N8 at the same time with Vodafones new cell site accross the road :)
Oh, except now my wife will know I'm there: www.google.com/latitude :(

I have no idea where that is, but is that in an urban or rural area? Just asking because it looks a fair bit taller than most cities allow.

After looking at the cafe website, it's based on SH1 in Cambridge, so very much rural.

Correct, it is rural, but does not look overly taller than normal.

Seems to have helped with coverage a little on SH 1B heading out of Cambridge too :)

Has there been any other cellsites or upgrades recently in this area? Is the Karapiro site still 2100?
Reason, there is improvement on SH1B North of Cambridge, but a check on the cell ID, it is not this above site.
