Vodafone NZ 3G, broadband and Auckland traffic

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 21-Feb-2007 09:01

I am waiting for the boarding call for my flight to Wellington. I had to catch a cab ride from Auckland CBD to the aiport two hours ahead of the time, just to be sure I'd be here on time for check-in.

It looks like the Auckland Traffic Engineering team forgot all about synchronising traffic lights, or traffic lights at all. Lots of roundabouts here, with traffic coming from opposite directions, with one flow crossing the path of the incoming commuter flow, meaning no give away is possible and meaning the traffic just won't flow. At least 30 minutes wait to go through one roundbout. Ridiculous.

Then I tried to access the Internet at the Auckland airport. Crap service. No wi-fi facilities. But talking about "service", let's try connecting with Vodafone New Zealand's 3G network... Almost no go!

A picture tells a thousand words. Just check the horrible service you get from Vodafone 3G in the airport. An airport, with thousands of people coming and going, business deals waiting to happen, blog posts waiting to happen:
