Vodafone customers in the Manawatū area are expected to notice a massive increase in call speed and quality.

Build the infrastructure and a faster internet will come.

This is one of the main reasons for Vodafone’s major infrastructure program to better connect ManawatÅ«-Whanganui. Since its completion, it has provided fast, reliable mobile internet and clearer phone calls to the region at a time when the Kiwis need reliable bandwidth more than ever.

The pandemic has triggered a major shift in the way we do things, and distance working and learning is the new status quo. Video calling for work or education takes up a lot of bandwidth, as does listening to endless podcasts or streamlining videos to keep you entertained in your spare time.

With connectivity challenges replacing the daily battle with traffic as our greatest daily stress at work or study, having the best available mobile internet connection is now the number one priority.

But if you are lucky enough to call the ManawatÅ«-Whanganui region home, you don’t have to worry about slow or spotty mobile internet connections as Vodafone has upgraded 67 mobile phone sites in the region to include the 4G, 4.5G or 5G technology. , by building 16 new cell sites, in addition to 33 Rural Broadband Initiative 2 (RBI2) sites.

Vodafone customers in the region should notice an improvement in the speed and reliability of their mobile connections, says Thaigan Govender, head of mobile access networks for Vodafone NZ.

“Vodafone customers in the Manawatū region should notice a massive increase in terms of call speed and quality as we have invested millions of dollars in our digital infrastructure in the region over the past year,” he said. -he declares.

“We now offer mobile customers the best network for data and voice performance, the fastest downloads and by far the largest 5G footprint. Our own calculations show that we have the largest 5G network in Aotearoa, and it’s great to see some testing. that our 5G network is available in almost 50% of the places where people live and work in the ManawatÅ« area! “

In fact, independent tests show that Vodafone offers its customers the best mobile network in the Manawatū region, achieving the highest score in terms of data and voice call performance.

The August 2021 umlaut audit report shows that the Vodafone network is the leading mobile provider in Manawatū for voice calls and data performance, outperforming both Spark and 2degrees.

In addition, the Vodafone network is more than three times faster than any other mobile operator in the Manawatū region, which means that Vodafone customers get the fastest mobile downloads. Umlaut speed tests show that Vodafone offers average mobile download speeds of 196 Mbps across Manawatū, compared to Spark offering 52 Mbps and 2 degrees with 41 Mbps.

It’s enough to make us a little envious, but Govender says Vodafone has good news for the rest of Aotearoa in New Zealand.

“ManawatÅ« is the first region where we have completed mobile network upgrades, but we are currently upgrading our digital infrastructure in parts of Bay of Plenty, Taranaki and Invercargill, and we will eventually travel all over the country, “he says.

“We hope to achieve similar results in other areas of Aotearoa in New Zealand to ensure we offer remarkable technology solutions to help Kiwi businesses and consumers thrive. This is even more important now, during the global pandemic, as New Zealanders turn to mobile technology to continue working, living and playing remotely. “

5G is available in parts of Manawatū with a 5G plan and a 5G device from Vodafone or Noel Leeming.
