Telecom and Vodafone Embrace MMS in New Zealand
Posted on 27-Sep-2005 19:55. | Tags Filed under: News.



Telecom New Zealand and Vodafone New Zealand customers are now able to send photo and video messages and sound to each other over their mobiles between networks.

Until now users in both networks could not send or receive MMS (Multimedia Message Service) messages due to differences in their networks. Telecom New Zealand operates a CDMA network while Vodafone New Zealand operates a GSM service.

Vodafone PXT or Telecom Photo Messaging enables customers to create, send and receive messages containing colour video messages, or photos with sounds and voice recordings from mobile to mobile. These service are now compatible with each other, on select cellular handsets.

Vodafone General Manager Consumer Marketing Larrie Moore said he expected PXT volumes to lift significantly in light of the
deal, mirroring the explosion in SMS messaging that occurred when SMS between Telecom and Vodafone was introduced in 2001.

Telecom is also expecting a big increase in the number of customers who use Photo Messaging following this announcement today.
