Hi Team.

 

Can you confirm 5G is running in Glen Eden already!? 

According to the coverage map it is.... 

Surely it must be a mistake I mean I thought you would start in the central areas first.. 

I don't have a 5G device to test yet (no 5G iphone's till September)

If I don't get an answer here I'll have to go have a look at the cellsite and see if it has any Sectors changed.

Its not on all sites. But I can definately see it's live on the Glen Eden West cell site which is located on Waikaukau Road

I'm assuming the site was upgraded to 4.5G at the same time?

Heya Christopher. Looks like - the was additional 4G upgrades on the site too. The work started mid November and was finished off just about a week ago.

It was never in the ''Planned mobile network upgradeds''

I also didn't experence any disruption to my service.

Are the 4G upgrades live or locked down?

I can't check historical planned work posts on this community so unable to verify that.

 

Most sites will require a daytime outage when new hardware is being installed however.

 

Looks like Glen Eden West had on on the 27th of November. Chances are in an urban area you'll have overlapping coverage from other cell sites which reduces the changes of disruption.
