Mobile coverage

I'm buying a prepaid SIM card when I land in NZ in a week. I'm concerned about which company offers the best, most reliable coverage on Waiheke Island. Any suggestions?

I'm 99% sure Waiheke has similar mobile coverage to Auckland, so any SIM should work fine. I'm with Vodafone and have had full coverage here with no problems or interruptions.

I picked up a free 2 degrees SIM from the Airbus info rack and found good coverage on Waiheke.

In the past I'd always used Vodofone and had the same very good reception on the island.
