I wonder if 2Degrees need any Beta testers for the Dunedin/Mosgiel network?
I'd be keen!! :)

The Geekzone user BarTender has compiled a map of 2degrees' new cellphone towers: http://maps.google.co.nz/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=http://sites.google.com/site/nzcellinfo/TwoDegreesNew.kml

For the full list of maps take a look at http://www.geekzone.co.nz/BarTender/7403

dontpanic42: I'm a little puzzled as to why 2D seem to be focusing more on Invercargill before Dunedin.
Maybe it's just a question of the logistics being trickier in the hills of Dunedin?


Probably something to do with Dunedin having 3 times the number of sites. You'd think they have this thing turned on before xmas.

have a look at the INVERCARGILL thread. They havn't offically launched Invercargill yet.

True, true. Higher population density of course requires more towers.

Also true. I guess it just seems like they are further along with the Invercargill network. Maybe it's just perceived due to there being more discussion around it.

Same here. My phone is going in and out of connecting to Vodafone NZ | 2Degrees, and just 2Degrees.
Looks like we're close-er.

Sitting on Gordon Road @ work, picking up just 2degrees, no roaming triangle and full signal.

Pretty sure it said VodafoneNZ-2Degrees yesterday.

Hi all

The Dunedin network was switched on last night but it's not a Mobile Broadband Zone just yet. We're still testing and optimizing to get things right and will announce when it's ready.

Cheers

Just did a speed test whilst connected to the new 2Degrees Dunedin network and got between 1Mbps - 1.2Mbps DL, and between 300Kbps - 1.0Mbps UL.

I'm actually in Mosgiel as well. I only had between 1-2 bars though. The ping seems to be a lot better compared to Vodafone, though.
As 2Degrees has said, they are still optimising, so my speed test results are probably due to an un-optimised network, and possibly due to location as well.

On a side note, I went past poo corner today and couldn't see any noticeable 'antenna-like' structures. Is it visible at all?
