richms: Are they doing the whole journey between AK and HAM? Would have thought that there would be a good case for doing hampton downs etc even if they leave the rest of the route roaming on VF.

I would've doubted this, as i imagine the volume of calls on the motorway via what should technically be hands free kits isn't particularly high?
Plus advertising it a broadband zone would seem kind of pointless, though i suppose for people using stuff like google maps on the go it helps, but it wouldn't be a large volume of data as a guess.

There's already a vodafone tower there, but located on top of a streetlight. They must've used one close to this.

Going to go a bit off-topic here,

If you search the RSM database for the following:

MNW = Manawatu (Palmerston North) and Wanganui Tower Locations
BOP = Tauranga and Rotorua Tower Locations
HKB = Hawkes Bay Tower Locations
WKT = Waikato and Taupo Tower Locations
NTH = Northland (Whangarei)
STH = Southland (Invercargill)
OTG = Otago (Queenstown and Dunedin)

Bartender if you read this, any chance you could re-run the 2degrees KML files based on the backhaul frequencies ?

I'd love to know the step by step process of what you're doing to get the KMLs too.

I know I have been promising this for a while (go blame my employer for why I haven't been active Smile )

I'll zip up a lot of the files I used and try and get them up onto google docs here by end of this week.

I'll also re-run my export to try and get a new set of data including the latest 2Degrees microwave sites.
