Vodafone has switched on additional 4G mobile services in the Southland district, which means more New Zealanders can
stay connected while continuing to work and learn from home.
These two new cell sites in two towns are the latest in Vodafone’s commitment, as part of the Rural Connectivity Group
and in partnership with Farmside, to bring forward world class 4G services for more Kiwis across Aotearoa during this
unprecedented time of uncertainty.
The new cell sites will radically transform access to communication services and will assist rural Kiwis during the
COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.
Vodafone’s head of Networks and Platforms, Sharina Nisha says, “Connectivity is more important than ever now, and the
telecommunications industry is pleased to work together to keep New Zealanders connected. The additional mobile
connectivity will provide essential online access for remote working, at-home learning and entertainment.”
Vodafone is working with Farmside, award-winning rural broadband provider, to connect more New Zealanders together.Site information:Site NameCouncil RegionCatlins ForestSouthland DistrictQuarry HillsSouthland District
