Our networks team is working constantly to improve our mobile network's coverage and capacity. Here are the planned upgrades for the coming weeks. If you're in one of the areas listed below, you may experience a partial or complete loss of mobile voice and data services between 7am and 8pm on the dates listed. After the work is complete, we are confident you will enjoy a better coverage and faster speeds on the Vodafone mobile network.

A word about 4G frequencies

 

If your area has 4G 1800MHz or 2600MHz, you can enjoy 4G with any Vodafone approved 4G capable device. If your area only has 4G 700MHz, you need a Vodafone approved 4G phone which supports 700MHz. For the full list see http://www.vodafone.co.nz/4G
