*** Anyone joined up with 2 degs 3G in a motorhome

Interested to hear from others who might have if they are using a laptop. Better than Telecom or Vodafone?

You do realise that 2degrees only launched 3G today, it may be too early to ask people for feedback: http://computerworld.co.nz/news. nsf/news/at-the-2degrees-3g-
launch

Also its expensive outside of their coverage areas. Probably not so good for a motorhome.

I have a 2deegrees sim in my backup cellphone, the others on vodafone

Pricing looks ok, but they roam onto vodafone outside the centers so you get vodafones craptastic network there at very high prices.

The vodafone network is fine

Bollux it is fine, GPRS fall back all the time is not fine for a mobile internet connection.

Sounds like your device doesn't support 900MHz UTMS. Mine does and I almost never see it drop to 2g.

Still competitive (i. e. less than Vodafone)

geek_gbbrot, Aug 5, 7:43 am

That is only true if you don't buy a data pack and use more than 18MB in a day or you do buy a datapack and use less than 68MB in a month.

Otherwise vodafone is marginally cheaper

I travel all around the north island for work, and even in remote locations i'm yet to have no internet access on XT.
