Vodafone NZ Ltd Mobile Broadband APN

Asked by Cai-Uwe on 2009-10-12

Hi there, when installing 9.04 the installer suggest to use the following APN's
live.vodafone.com or internet
both are not the mobile broadband APN's.
live.vodafone.com is a handset APN and restricted as per deault not a great experience for users.
internet is only for special use cases and doesn't has all data plans applied.
Please change to
www.vodafone.net.nz for data card optimized http traffic
In the case of any query please do not hesitate to contact me

Thank you for submitting this information. Unluckily this may not be the perfect place.
There already is a bug report about New Zealand's Vodafone provider information. I linked it to this question (see the lower right corner of this page!).
As a professional you should be able to provide very useful information to the developers team.
You should add a comment there listing all possible configurations with their settings.
Alternatively you could edit the file /usr/share/mobile-broadband-provider-info/serviceproviders.xml yourself and attach the edited section to the bug.
If you so so I'm pretty sure the developers will be able to make the changes quickly.

Please get this updated My parents even went into the vodafone store today and were told the modem would not work, I got home and 5 mins googling found this and now it works fine

Can you help with this problem?
