NZ mobile and fixed line network map

Just looking at my bills and probably by the end of this year I would have moved over to Vodadone for their higher speed cable internet that’ll be flat rate along with cable television and mobile especially when one considers the lighting pace that Vodafone is upgrading their network where as Telecom seem to be lumbering along like an old fart with a zimmer frame when it comes to at least coming up with a plan for their 700Mhz network expansion. This map here ( link ) does a pretty good job outlining where the cell sites are and what their capabilities are (2G, 3G, 4G, 700Mhz, 850Mhz, 900Mhz, 1800Mhz, 2100Mhz, 2600Mhz) – although it doesn’t give an estimation of coverage one can get a good picture as to whether or not one is in a giant signal black hole. UFB (Ultra Fast Broadband) aka fibre won’t be coming to my area until July 2016 at the earliest so I guess I’ll just have to make do with a 130Mbps connection – ah, first world problems.
