Do you know for sure that they're planning to offer a service to Upper Hutt? I seem to recall that the existing investors are planning to pump in a bit of extra cash in the near future which is likely to lead to further expansion of the network, but I would have thought that they would want to improve their coverage in Wellington and Lower Hutt before attacking Upper Hutt. Then again, their network expansion seems to be a bit hit-and-miss, so anything's possible.

I'm very surprised that they wouldn't talk to you about pricing. You can't sell a product to someone if you can't or won't tell them how much it costs! My experience of their call centre has been much more positive than this.

I am with you on that one, the guy said he didnt have that info, I personally thought he didnd want to scare me off with the price.
also they told dad they are working their way up the valley and will make an effort to get coverage in our area as we have said we want in on the service
