Friend of mine lives out this way just north of Albany and they have a 2degrees site built in the last 18 months line of site but it has no 4G on it

@2degreescare can you check with anyone in the RAN team if 4G is going to be added to this site anytime soonish?

Thanks

I'm sure when I'm out at the BIL's place in Kaukapakapa I get LTE.





iPad Air + iPhone SE + 2degrees 4tw!

@SaltyNZ Correct Kaukapakapa does have 4G and all sites around the area but not the Dairy Flat site which I thought was odd

@Linex are you able to PM us your phone number and the location details?
I have checked in with the RAN team and they are wanting to look into this further.

 


Cheers

Cellmapper.net shows that site as only 900Mhz UTMS. Last update looks to be July this year so things may have changed since then.

There aren't many that map in NZ, 2D is the least mapped network.

 

 

 

so not sure if it really counts as much of a source compared to RSM

100% U900 only. Any LTE coverage you'll get in the area will be overlapping L900 (closest by) or L1800 (bit further out but higher priority due to more BW).

Next to zero LTE coverage around the area until you get closer to Silverdale driving North

I'm sure 2degrees will be out in Blue Helicopter soon to deploy the 4G upgrade to this site :)




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?
