Check your coverage

Coverage depends on where you are, and what device you are using. For example, to get 4G mobile speeds you need to be in a 4G area and have a 4G capable device. In addition to this, there are various 4G spectrums. The newest, 4G 700MHz, provides better coverage in rural locations and is more effective at penetrating walls and buildings. It requires a compatible phone or device.

Please note: The above map is indicative only and intended to provide general guidance on where our network and outdoor coverage is available. Coverage may vary depending on the type of device used.


What's our coverage?


2G/3G coverage

Our mobile network delivers 3G throughout the country, high speed dual carrier 3G in urban centres and rural areas, plus 2G backup. Our cellsites cover 98.5%* of where Kiwis live, work and play.


4G coverage

Our 4G network connects more than 94% of the population. Our 4G extended coverage uses both 1800MHz and 700MHz and we have a range of devices that work on both frequencies. With 4G you can do exciting stuff like stream or download HD movies in minutes, not hours.



If you're out on the water, you have access to our fantastic extended 900 MHz 3G network – this means that smartphones have coverage for up to 120kms offshore. We still recommend you have a VHF radio on board for emergencies.
