richms: Surely its near time that they pull the vodafone roaming? I thought it was just a stopgap measure till 2degrees had built their own network.


the vodafone roaming doesn't actually work reliably anyway - it's only in certain areas.  if you're in a dead spot in auckland it won't help you. (such as I used to have in west auckland)

"2degrees’ national 3G coverage of more than 97% of the population"

Really? Considering Vodafone is 97.5%, that only leaves 0.5% where users would have to roam on Vodafone's network.





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

maybe that includes vodafone?  and the 0.5% are users who are in areas that can't roam to vodafone.

We're including our 'roaming network' in that figure.

freitasm: Just received:


...
2degrees’ 4G network now includes greater Tauranga, Ashburton, Blenheim, Dunedin, Feilding, Gisborne, Hastings, Katikati, Kihikihi, Levin, Napier, Palmerston North, Queenstown, Rangiora, Rotorua, Te Awamutu, Whangamata South, Whanganui and
Whangarei.
...
2degrees will continue its 4G rollout with a further eight areas to come online by early 2016 including greater Christchurch, Cambridge, Huntly, Kapiti, Masterton, Motueka, Oamaru and Whakatane. These areas will bring 2degrees’ 4G population coverage to almost 70%.


So no mention of New Plymouth?

Even though New Plymouth has a larger population than a lot of the places already covered (at least 10 in the list), and larger than some due to come online in early 2016?
