Hamilton Airport




Cambridge Road, Hamilton. This site is one of two HSPA+ sites that I know of in Hamilton.

There are many results that I have posted with ~50-80ms ping on pages 4 & 5 :-)

Yet alone the 3.67Mbit upload result I posted above on September 7th.

It's a sad day for NZ HBB when your MBB upload is nearly faster than your HBB download!

Or it isnt when it comes to fixed broadband offerings.

But its not like uploading a 30 min 1080 clip over MBB is really cost effective ;)

how is it for reliability of the connection? Still having random pauses in thruput etc? thats something that speedtest doesnt report which is a shame, since then you could start the test, go for a hoon around the block/over the bridge etc and get results on the random pauses etc in it.

Seems that Rotorua does have (at least) one HSPA+ site - at Rotorua International Stadium.

With a crowd of 10,500 for the world cup game on Saturday still got this sort of speed pretty impressive.

Does Glenview in Hamilton have HSDPA+ coverage?
Or is my XPERIA X10i HSDPA 7.2Mbps phone just not up to snuff.

First of all, there is such thing as HSDPA+, it is called HSPA+. More information can be read about it in this post;
http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=40&topicid=88607&page_no=1#508907

Your phone does not support HSPA+, but the Samsung GS2 is one of the only devices in NZ that does, at this time.

I have tested in Glenview on my Samsung GS2 and there is no HSPA+ coverage there. The only two locations I know of are around and at Waikato Stadium, plus heading out of Hamilton on towards Cambridge, on Cambridge Road.

@Richard2011 - Cool, thanks for that, I wasn't aware of HSPA/HSPA+, but I am now. 8-)

To be honest I didn't even look it up I just thought people were mis-spilling HSDPA
