    Re: new fibre install = better cellphone?

    yeah i think i will go fibre. i really do not like having everything running over just one network.

    Re: new fibre install = better cellphone?

    it could actually be true.
    they could have upgraded the capabilities of the cell towers as the likes of vodafone are pushing customers onto 4g broadband. of course as more users go to 4g broad band...

    yes, fiber is currently being installed in the town. i suspect that part of vodafones motivation, get people setup up on their network rather than going to north powers network.
