Early testing has shown the technology delivers a significant increase in download speeds for 4G users; the average speed increases up to 56 percent in some locations. Upgrades have been completed at 72 sites around the country, including Cambridge, Kerikeri, Napier, Blenheim and some sites in Auckland, with more planned for 2016. Carrier aggregation is well-suited to Vodafone's 4G spectrum bands 700 MHz, 1800 MHz and 2600
