    Life to the power of 5G
    -----------------------
    We're excited to share that we're rolling out our 5G network
    in New Zealand* from December. 5G will be a huge step for
    connectivity and we're delighted to take you on this journey
    with us. It's the first of many locally focussed innovations
    that our new Kiwi ownership are supporting us to deliver.

    A jump in possibilities
    5G is the next generation in mobile communication. More than
    just faster speeds, it's a whole new kind of network. One
    which will be smarter and more responsive. A network that
    will ultimately enable new experiences that change how we
    live, work, and play.

    Where it begins
    Some of the first to experience the new network will be the
    services and companies that Kiwis depend on. We're proud to
    announce we'll be working alongside NZ Police, BNZ,
    Auckland's Rescue Helicopter Trust and Waste Management to
    embrace the possibilities of 5G.

    Look out for more updates from us, as we work towards
    launching the network to bring you life to the power of 5G.


    * 5G launches December 2019 in parts of Auckland, Wellington,
    Christchurch and Queenstown.

    Yawn!!!!

    I'd prefer Vodafone to concentrate on providing a decent service to
    parts of rural New Zealand. Some of us still have no mobile at all and
    an average daily download speed of less than 1Mbps, which means the
    internet is practically unusable in the evenings when bit rates are even
    lower.

    But Vodafone, the government and and the rest of them, just couldn't
    really care about rural New Zealand. Rural Broadband Initiative? A big
    joke!!!!

    Vodafone plans to charge premium for 5G some time after its launch https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/114665911

    Vodafone customers won't pay an extra charge for its 5G network when it launches in December, but the company does intend to impose a price
    premium down the track, Vodafone NZ chief executive Jason Paris says.

    Vodafone plans to charge premium for 5G some time after its launch https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/114665911

    Vodafone customers won't pay an extra charge for its 5G network when it launches in December, but the company does intend to impose a price
    premium down the track, Vodafone NZ chief executive Jason Paris says.

    According to the article in today's NZ Herald Business section, there's
    no "intend to impose a price premium" ... but it is a possibility,
    depending on what's happening with 5G options from Spark and 2Degrees
    at that time.

    Basically Vodafone NZ have set a price for now and plan to be "first to market", but when the other companies catch up, Vodafone NZ may decide
    to raise prices to match the others. i.e. rather than providing
    cheapers price and any actual competitive pricing, they'll just all
    greedily con customers for as much as they can get away with, as usual.
    The same as when these greedy companies didn't drop copper broadband
    pricing when rolling out fibre. :-\
