Hi,

Just looking into the only legal mobile phone boosters in NZ at the moment, Cel-Fi, and noticed that they seem to only sell devices that lock into one mobile phone provider e.g just for Vodafone, or just for 2degrees or just for Spark.

Is there one that is able to repeat all three at once just cause the household may be on more than one provider's network?

Thanks.




Sony

I see. And will these work with mobile EFTPOS machines that run off 3G? I don't see why not at first glance.

No issue at all they are just a 3G booster they don't care if it's a EFTPOS transaction or looking at p0rnhub

You would need a repeater per network. There is a Quatra band that I think can be programmed for cross network, but this is more a large commercial configuration and probably cheaper to buy multiple standard repeaters. I can make some inquiries for you and see if there is a custom solution. And yes will support 3G data.





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.

the quatras are still network locked. good units but not cheap at all.

You will find eftpos runs much better over wifi or ethernet from a standard cellular internet router (RBI Modem) with external antenna.
