They have done this because telecom will be getting all the mobile broadband users who are here for the world cup ! If my sources are corrcect, they have been installing HSDPA . XT already has this.

This cracks me up!


Vodafone MBB speeds have been better for me in Rotorua since the weekend - not just speed tests everything downloading emails, web browsing all faster.


Now if you can fix the damn iPhone tethering problem i'll be happy

You mean HSPA+

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Speed_Packet_Access

Johnr, But how many sites are live with HSPA+?

OR.... The real question is, because we know it affects it hugely...

Whats the customer ratio between VF and XT per HSPA site? If XT had 2 people and VF had 100 then that would indicative of the results we have.
