So I have in the past whinged about the coverage in Khandallah/Onslow Rd area. Our family has a designated corner in the living room for mobile calls.

 

But recently I noticed a significant improvement. In fact I even saw 3 bars and 4G reception. Has 2 degrees added new towers in the area, or just tweaked the settings? Whichever it is, thanks! 

 

Where can one find up-to-date location of cell towers?

Just recently switched to warehouse mobile (which uses the two degrees network) and so far have been happy with the coverage especially here in Stokes Valley.

A reminder that 2degrees supports WiFi calling on some handsets so if you are home and have your phones connected to WiFi you should have no problem with coverage.

Usually that means you have to buy a new handset  which most people don't want to do.
