Kilbirnie, Wellington cell sites

G'day Folks

 

Got the text a wee while ago that you'll be upgrading the cell sites in/around Kilbirnie. 

 

Presume that work's started as signal strength on my R208 suddenly shot to 5 bars over the weekend from it's usual 1 bar (back to that 1 bar again now), plus I've been having trouble making/receiving/dropping voice calls and sending/receiving texts.

 

Great to see the work happeningSmiley Happy. Just wondering if you can give me an idea of the timeframe for completion.

 

Thanks n cheers, Gobit

Signal strength at home over the last 10 years or so has been barely 1 bar on the wifi and around -117 on the mobile.

 

Now 5 full bars on the R208 and -94 on the iP, websites are loading quickly and downloads are screaming through.

 

One very happy chappie here. Thanks Folks! Smiley Very Happy

 

Cheers, Gobit

I think you mean 1 bar on the MIFI and -94 on the iPhone?
