New Cell tower has come up at the top of pakuranga heights. Not Telecom because its 50m from the exchange where the Telecom tower is and not vodafone as they installed their own last year just down the road. I'll try to get a pic.

Could be another NZ Comms tower. Good to see that they are rapidly rolling out a network.
Hopefully we will finally see some serious competition in the mobile market.

2 New sites gone up in birkdale/beach haven that I have seen. one on a lamppost opposite the challange, and one at verrans corner outside the mobil. It seems that gas stations and cellsites are natural neighbours since both thos stations are surrounded by them, the mobil has 4 near it now.

Also noticed there is a new tower on the onramp off the South Eastern onto the Southern motorway.

Thats another NZ Coms one judging by the look of it. If you can get to the cabinet it will say so on the doors.

EDIT: Here is a close up of one in Papakura
