According to the map there's no 4G coverage for Hornby.  Was hoping that when 4G comes it might improve the signal there - always lose service in the Pak'nsave.

Everybody is bad in Hornby Pak n Save, even the Police's digital radio's don't work once you cross the entry (and from memory the old Analogue network was just as bad).

I got 4G for the first time last night in Central Christchurch. Standing on corner of Moorhouse and Manchester at 2100, got 1 bar of 4G. Speedtest was 30 down, 3.4 up. As soon as I went inside Denny's (not by choice I might add) it dropped back to 3G. Currently sitting at work in the CBD, have the usual patchy 3G coverage. No 4G coverage at my home in Redwood unfortunately.

Please remember that 4G speedtests cost around 100-300mb a pop.
