On the back of this coverage upgrade, any chance Haast would get RBI2+, or is that a bridge too far maybe?

The only other plan is for 4G to be added to the site in the future

There has been another Cellsite built just down the road at Pleasant Flat, NZTA says its a short range site. Can't see it noted on gis.geek.nz however

Haast to get Fibre Backhaul:... maybe UFB?

 

https://www.beehive.govt.nz/release/45m-boost-south-island-connectivity

 

22m for Haast Fibre Loop between Fox Glacier and Lake Hawea

 

$1m to extend and accelerate Ultrafast Broadband (UFB) in UFB towns on the West Coast

That's very cool. 

 

 

 

Big job putting Fibre all the way through there.

Awesome! I always felt bad they missed out purely on location (Karamea which is much smaller has more services available). It will also provide some network redundancy as well.

https://www.odt.co.nz/regions/west-coast/cellphone-coverage-downside 

 

 

The recent addition of cellphone coverage in remote parts of South Westland has also introduced the area to a problem experienced everywhere - people driving while on the phone.

 

Small cell towers have been erected at Haast township, Roaring Billy car park, Pleasant Flat, Lake Moeraki, Bruce Bay and Lake Wahapo.

 

''There have been several crashes directly next to these sites recently and the cell coverage is gold,'' Senior Constable Paul Gurney, of Haast police, said.

 

But the towers were small and only covered about 50m, so people had to stop their car. The Haast tower covers a wider area with a 4km radius.

 

''We are hoping they'll be getting on to building the more permanent sites for Haast (Haast Junction, Okuru, Hannahs Clearing and Neils Beach/Jackson Bay),'' Mr Gurney said.

 

''The only negative for police is we now catch the 'odd' person driving while on the phone at Haast.''

Over the weekend I was talking to a dude in the pub who said his employer has been awarded the contract to run fiber from Hawea to Haast.

 

 

He cautioned it would take a while as it was last in a series of fiber run contacts and the terrain was pretty rugged.




Obsequious hypocrite

I think once they get fibre to Haast it will be well worth the wait - assuming that's what's going to happen? UFB2+ for Haast?

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?

Might be quicker to take a lead from Twizel, over the hill through the glaciers....those things are melting quickly so a natural conduit developing.

I'm sure I saw a video after the Kaikoura Earthquake that Vodafone was doing this but with a helicopter, run a cable over the bush around their fibre cut until the main link could be fixed
