3G in the country but not in the city

Why is it that in Dunedin I cannot get 3G internet on my Telecom phone but out on the open road in the middle of no-where I can?

What model of cell are you using? And is it only internet access that you can not receive, or are you getting no reception at all in town?

It's a Samsung A900 and I get full signal in town for texting or calling. It's just that I don't get 3G for internet. I only get EDGE

TNZ do not operate with EDGE, do you mean EV-DO? On the CDMA2000 network EV-DO is the fastest protocol (It isn't true 3G). So I am picking that while out on the road you can get EV-DO, but in town you drop back to 1xRTT?

Oh yes sorry it is EVDO. No when I was in the country I went onto the internet and it came up with the 3G transmit icon but in the city all it comes up is the "Internet Available" icon according to the manual.
