Vodafone claims fastest network in Auckland, Wellington

Tuesday 30 October 2012 | 23:31 CET | News
Vodafone New Zealand claims that the Apple iPhone 5 will run faster on its network in the Auckland and Wellington business districts, than on Telecom's or 2degrees' networks. Vodafone commissioned a report from Epitiro, which measured an average download speed of 13.6 Mbps and an average upload speed of 2.2 Mbps, about twice it recorded on the networks of Vodafone's competitors, Stuff.co.nz reports. Vodafone's speeds were boosted the operator's investments in Dual-Carrier HSPA, Epitiro says. However, 2degrees said the tests, which were carried out between 3 and 10 October, could already be out of date as the company has quadrupled its DC-HSPA coverage in the Auckland CBD recently. By Christmas, 2degrees plans to increase coverage by a further 30 percent. The company also said that Epitiro's results are inconsistent with the operator's own measurements. Telecom also said it is expected to upgrade more than 30 percent of its mobile sites to DC-HSPA before Christmas and it will then also be piloting LTE technology.
