Hey guys,
Sorry this may be a bit of an ignorant question, but i just wanted to make sure.

But I'm from a town just 20 minutes out of Christchurch called Rangiora.

And I checked the mobile broadband zones, and it is definitely out of zone.

But i just wanted to double check before I buy a national data pack.
So if anyone can give me a diffinite answer as to wheather or not I can get a a Mobile broadband zone data pack or not would be great.

Cheers, and apologies if this is an obvious no.

Sorry they only have 2100mhz as far as Chaneys corner so nothing out your way.

Bartender has given us a brilliant resource - Tower locations!

If you're wondering a towers range, you can probably figure it out based on how many towers they need to cover an area, so its pretty clear.

Spot the towers that don't exist anymore.
