Surely thats a big risk opening up your network un-optimised.

Whats happens if you have holes in the coverage? customers won't be happy if they are jumping between VF Roaming and 2degrees.

Very odd decesion if you ask me.

It's not completely unoptimised. It has been on air and under test for weeks. But you can't complete the optimisation without actual traffic, because the traffic affects the radio performance. In fact optimisation *never* stops; every network is constantly tweaking parameters to keep the radio network working as well as possible.

However, the fact that it *isn't* completely optimised is why it's not advertised as open, let alone a broadband zone.

iPad Air + iPhone SE + 2degrees 4tw!

These comments are my own and do not represent the opinions of 2degrees.

"Cell mapper" for finding coverage areas are calculated and cell phone tower locations

And then "Sensorly" used for finding coverage areas
