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.

@ScoobyYes it was upgraded but when 4G is added to sites it's unlocked for a short time then generally locked down again for lets say fine tuning then unlocked about a week or so later

Is there any timeframe as to when or if Cape Karikari will have new 4G added? We currently have 4G on 700Mhz (that I am aware of) but just wondered. I know there was some work done recenlty with the tower in the area, and that the tech guy said he had been installing some new eqiupment on the tower, and he said that Vodafone team then come out to check equipment and then possibly there may then be new 4G added or turned on on the tower. Im interested because my iPad i have does pick up 4G however, not where I live as the 4G out this way is over 700Mhz? The ipad picks it up on a different frequency/band, so I am led to believe/understand?
I would love to use my ipad on 4G up here, but seldomly use it on mobile data as its on Wifi all the time, and not much point when it only picks up 3G up here currently.
Any info or update you can give would be great!
