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.

@kainoabrass

If that mast is the one servicing the area you're talking about then yes you'll see an improvement. Is your location close to that street?

41 Elliot street papakura. Its just inside the gym its really patchy. i just spoke to 2x friends and 1x says there is no reception and the other says there are certain areas. I know ive changed from vodafone because of the reception but this was 3x years ago. I just joined again and will see how it is. The owners always have to step outside for reception also for calls etc.

@kainoabrassI am sure that is just an indoor blackspot and will not change with any recent upgrades
