Hi all.

I may be able to source some Huawei E169 USB modems which will work on Vodafone NZ to give you 3G over a pretty good chunk of urban AND rural NZ, with the footprint currently expanding rapidly.

They should be available in 2 - 4 weeks and probably cost around $400. They will be Huawei branded and with the addition of the Vodafone APN to their software utility should work fine. I will of course be testing one here in NZ before I commit to buying one.

Let me know if you are interested, stock will be limited.

Looks like a good product, cost prohibitive though.

Yeah - standard Vodem pricing DSE link (Can get it with sim card for $399)

Hopefully they will be a bit cheaper than the $400 mark, fingers crossed

Does have a microSD card reader built in too :-)

That HuaWei USB modem looks like the one that recently been shown (in picture) for Vodafone Italia's Vodafone Station FMC.

Yes Vodafone NZ is getting this modem as a Vodafone branded one, they just don't have them here yet :-(

Nope, I want an Express Card :(




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?
