Hey guys,

 

I was wondering, are 2degrees own sites only the sites that are in the mobile broadband zones?

Or do they have their own 2g sites elsewhere as well?

 

So is every 2degrees cell site 2100mhz 3G? as well as 900mhz 2G?

 

Are all 2degrees sites EDGE?

 

So if the only 2degrees towers are the ones that are in the mobile broadband zones, then one would only get Edge speeds while in a mobile broadband zone, yes?

 

 

I tried my best to word that and make sense, I can't figure it out, so I knew you guys would have an answer.

*shurgs*

I ask because my main phone, a defy, recently died and am going to be using a 2G handset for a while, and wanted to make sense of it all.

 

Cheers.

2degrees have their own sites in the mbb zones. Almost all the sites have 2G 900 and 3G 2100. A few also have 2G 1800, and most of the new sites outside akl, wlg, chc have 3G 900 as well. I think pretty much all their network supports edge, though when you are outside their coverage and roaming on vodafone you will drop down to gprs if you only have a 2G handset.

Ah Thankyou, I appreciate the response, very detailed.

Right, so to clear that all up, 2degrees has no sites outside of its mobile broadband zones?
And all the sites within the Mobile broadband zones supports 900mhz 2G and 2100mhz 3G?
Correct?

wherever there is a 2d site there is a mobile broadband site. Check out bartenders blog for the exact locations.

traversd: Hey guys,

All 2d sites are 2G & 3G sites.

 

So is every 2degrees cell site 2100mhz 3G? as well as 900mhz 2G?


All 3G sites have 2100MHz. Some - particularly in the newer towns - also have UMTS 900.
 

Are all 2degrees sites EDGE?


Yes.
 

So if the only 2degrees towers are the ones that are in the mobile broadband zones, then one would only get Edge speeds while in a mobile broadband zone, yes?


Only if the 3G signal where you happened to be standing wasn't strong enough.
 

 






iPad Pro 11" + iPhone XS + 2degrees 4tw!

 

These comments are my own and do not represent the opinions of 2degrees.

Pretty sure UMTS 900 sites are only in 3rd wave rollout (after hamilton/tauranga) but saltyNZ knows best :)
