Yes. It's a 3g 2100mhz cell, anything you can normally do with 3g will work fine over it :)

 

 

Wow. I wish I had heard about this back then and I would have bought one. When I enquired they were only available for VFBB customers and I wanted to stay with Inspire.

Keep an eye on trademe, often there are decent deals to snatch a V2 model up. works fine, although i route it out my vodafone link in the hope they are doing QOS on the downstream route.

I am on a rural VDSL connection getting around 55/23 on speedtest.net. I use 2talk for landline and it works fine. So I am hoping this will work as well?

Sure Signal works fine on a ADSL2+ connection or even ADSL1

You mentioned Wifi - are you using Wifi calling? That is one of the advantages of 2degrees: you can use Wifi calling anywhere in the world for the same price as standing in your kitchen.

 

 

Thats only true for a limited number of models of phone.

My last (rural) house had ADSL1 at 7/.987 (after fully rewiring the internal system and getting a new wire back to the road pillar too.

Turns out a MINIMUM 1mb upload speed is required for a VF SureSignal to function AT ALL.

Been there, done that, much happier with 2Dā€™s Wifi calling option now šŸ˜‰

Thanks for the headsup about that.

 

Neither my Galaxy S6 or Tab S2 are supported.

Hopefully @Linux can enlighten us on what causes it to not work at all at ADSL1 speeds.

True, but that list now includes all supported iPhone models, and the list will always be expanding. In it's in our best interests for the list to be as long as possible as fast as possible.





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

 

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