Why would they do that and lose otherwise happy customers?

No what he means is that once they have say 92% coverage, their broadband packs can be used on the vodafone network. Taking a hit on the 5% who live there.

Hurry up with broadband in Ashbuton please. I am a modest data user and you mobile data package is a good'un for me.

If you don't hurry up all the Chorus cable that is being laid around the town will siphon away potential customers.

Towers/sites have been up and running for several months now... surely testing phase is nearly over? (crosses fingers)

You know that if you get access to their towers you are in the zone... Doesnt matter if it is official or not.

What about all the Electricity Ashburton fibre already laid?

If 2Degrees would care to expand to Oamaru and the greater Dunedin area, that would be swell too.

Much larger population centres than the Wairarapa don't have coverage yet...I would think they would roll out to them first.
