Hi

So I was using 3G in Auckland CBD today and it was great, but I don't seem to have 3G coverage in Mission Bay. (I know that in the 2Degrees areas you can't roam onto vodafone).

I have 4 bars of signal and usually connect to either Mission Bay Upper or Glendowie cells but neither gives me 3G. I thought there was 3G connectivity in all the 2Degrees towers? Is it not turned on at all of them yet?


Jordan?
P.S: Of course, I live here, so you might question why I need 3G :)

Can you see 2D 3G when you action a manual network selection on the handset?

No - I see 2Degrees 2G and Vodafone 2G and 3G. I don't think theres any issue with my phone because it was working fine in town today- I think it's just the 2Degrees 3G network in it's infancy?

Can you DM me your 2d #, address/where you're getting a blackspot and your phone make and model. There's no known issues, the waterfront up to Codrington Cres are well covered but there might be a few blackspots on the fringes. ^POB

Are there any plans to launch 2d coverage in Dunedin? I would seriously consider a Mobile Broadband plan, but lack of coverage means there isn't much point, and trying to use VF 3g today was incredibly slow and got regular connection loss. I live in Port Chalmers, so I can't even get 3g coverage at home, VF 2g cuts out in large areas of our house.
