kiwisteve: There is a new 2degrees site just gone in on the Kapiti Coast just north of Waikanae

its on a shared tower with TV, FM, linking and cellular Vodafone and Telecom

Was there today, 2degrees coverage everywere! Do you mean it is broadcasting from those very tall comms masts in Titahi Bay.

those very tall towers in Titahi Bay (2nd biggest structure in NZ incidentally) are for Radio New Zealand and such, no cell stuff on there AFAIK
