Good news is on the way however, NZ Communications have applied to the Lower Hutt City Council for permission to put a cellsite at the top of Honeysuckle Grove (near the water tower) which would deliver great coverage. I'm not sure if this will be a standalone mast or panels mounted on the existing water tower which already houses radio gear for several organisations including Smartlinx3 who have equipment for their wireless broadband product.
If NZ Comms can do this why can't Vodafone or Telecom?

Gussing this is a 900MHz tower and not a WCDMA one? Infact are NZ Comms still rolling out WCDMA?

Excuse my ignorance - this does mean better Vodafone coverage doesn't it?? I SO hate having to stand in one corner of my house in Maungaraki to talk on my phone!
