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.
