There were a lot of complaints when Spark put their one up behind the video store in Windsor a few years back



Yeah I remember that.

Haha that's very true. It's a very polarised topic.

I used to live in Waihopai street, and just being slightly down the hill and all the trees in that street was enough to know a good chunk of all providers signal out inside the house. Put your phone in the wrong spot on the couch and no signal. But go up to Layard and no issues at all. Also lived in Lamond St East across from Hargest (the school) and had no issues there. The joys of cell signal haha 

 

 

I live on Kowhai Avenue and it is a bit of a dip too, However at James hargest senior i can get 4 bars easily

 

 

 

 

The tower triangle in Sydney Street is good, great coverage from all networks

 

 

Yes but i live too far away :(, but yes you have all three within a few hundred metres of you there.

Heard back from ICC. They inherited the cabinet from Woosh and have requested for it to be removed.

Pity about all those Woosh towers being abandoned. Are they being inherited by each council in every area? I know there used to be one in Takapuna - I got my signal from it, on top of some tall building. I wonder if that one's still there.
