Excellent news, will give the other two telecos a bump.

I wonder how you get on the closed trail, send SaltyNZ some $$$?

I like how Hamilton is in the list already, instead of just the 3 largest cities.

I'm quietly wondering if they will beat Telecom to a lot of towns/cities, they have been very quiet since Xmas....

Edit: If the person who runs the gis.geek.nz website with the mobile towers map sees this, can you update it to show the 2degrees LTE sites?

The RSM info isn't going to show you 4G sites.
This is because it only shows licenced frequencies. Many 2Degrees sites were/are already using 1800Mhz for 2G (and possibly 3G?)

Hmmm... selling my spot to the highest bidder: I like your thinking!




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

 

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

Good stuff 2deg. Yeah hope this does get Telecom's rollout starting again.  It's been painfully slow!

Because we all notice the speed difference between 20-40Mb vs 80-150Mb via mobile?

Telecom is not 20-40 where I live our where I work. More like 0.05 to 4.

4g is supposed to give more bandwidth I'm going to get better mobile internet in both latency and raw speed




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.
