You can find our planned upgrades for coming months here

 

The coverage maps are updated monthly, so new changes might not be listed yet. You can check the coverage maps at http://www.vodafone.co.nz/network/coverage/ and we'll update them with the above sites soon.

 

I'll update the list above as more sites are upgraded or added during this month.

Hi, instead of users having to search the website, could a link to this information be put with the Network Status - Mobile page (https://www.vodafone.co.nz/help/network-status/#mobile) that is accessed from the main Vodafone homepage? There is just a generic entry about upgrades but no indication where or when it's happening.

 

It's the first place to go and see if there is a known outage but this information is not there.

 

Thanks.

Monique.
