DS248: Would be good to know future coverage plans, even if only for the next year.
Any likelihood of Vodafone coverage on the Hibiscus Coast in the near future?
About 5 times the population of the Warkworth + Omaha holiday zone already covered

Warkworth and Omaha population swells during Christmas / New years that is why 4G was deployed to these locations,

HBC should start seeing 4G pop up not too far off I suspect, Moving North now Albany is about to go live and was in test yesterday with users on twitter popping up happy 4G was showing up

Until JohnR tripped over the 4G plug :( hehe

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

That site loads like a slug, but nice map. Only problem is that it does not seem updated. Its been a while since Vodafone opened their 4G in my neighbourhood, and that transmitter is not shown on the map (well it is, but not as a 4G transmitter, if my assumptions are correct about which one it is).

It's like 4kb of text from Freemont CA, the rest is all Google's Fusion Tables/Google Maps, so if it doesn't load fast you must have an average route to Google. The data is raw RSM data, a transmitter can't exist with out a license, so your assumption is probably wrong. What's the tower? Can easily check.

DjShadow: I think that site got updated the other day, noticed a new 2degrees site showing north of the haywoods in the Wellington Region (indicated by the green paddle) 

It automatically updates every Monday night/Tuesday morning from new RSM data.
