We have just invested in a mobile connection for the laptop.
It was supposed to have been set up on Thursday and when we couldn’t connect we presumed it was because mobile reception can be a bit hit and miss at home.
However, when we tried to check road conditions on our way up the Waitaki Valley today it still wouldn’t connect.
The very helpful bloke at the Telecom help desk discovered our connection hadn’t been processed, then told me to hang up and he’d call me back when he’d sorted it out.
He did, it was and I was able to get reception until we entered the Lindis Pass.
