Just noticed the Vodafone K4605 on the homepage of the VF website and initially thought meh its just another old modem so I checked the tech specs:
  • Down/HSDPA 42.2Mbps
  • Up/HSUPA 5.76Mbps
I'd be very interested in hearing what kinds of speeds people are seeing on these and where. I must also note that the price of it is quite a bit higher than the other devices though at $249 outright and $199 on-contract, probably worth it though.

Under ideal conditions you'll hit 30Mbps on a DC capable site.

I'm a little skeptical as (at best) I can get 3Mbps on a 14.4Mbps device. Have you tried one yourself?

If you can only get 3Mbps you're clearly not connected to a 14.4Mbps capable site. Most 14.4 sites will deliver ~10Mbps under ideal conditions, and around 15Mbps for a 21.1 HSPA+ site

Yes, apparently so. Don't see what the hold up is though.

We tested one on the live Dual carrier network in Auckland CBD many months back and hit 30Mbps,

Vodafone have now deployed Fibre to approx 90% of our cell sites across NZ, Speed upgrades happen every week day night now! The other 10% of sites are getting upgraded as well with new Microwave links or other forms of transmission such as ATM

I'm not sure if you can answer this but is there any plans to bring this service to other areas?
