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 Mike,

 

Your 'upcoming upgrades for future months' link appears to be broken.  Can you post a link to future upgrades please?

 

Thanks,

Hi Looking at these, is 4G now running on 2100Mhz?  I thought it was only 700, 1800 & 2600.

 

Thanks

Hi, that's great.

 

In which case, though, shouldn't this page be updated?
