Spark is launching 5G service in Christchurch today, with the faster mobile technology available around the centre of the city – including The America’s Cup FanZone located at Five Lanes, 120 Hereford Street, 10am to 5pm.
Both mobile and wireless broadband service is on offer. See a coverage map here.
The Christchurch launch also marks the first time that Samsung’s mobile network gear has been used in a New Zealand build, and the first new telco infrastructure vendor on the scene for a decade (the Korean giant has, of course, long been selling its phones here).
Spark has already turned on 5G mobile in downtown Auckland and Takapuna, Te Awamutu, New Plymouth, Palmerston North and the Dunedin CBD.
