TelstraClear Announces Unplugged
Posted on 19-Jul-2006 17:33. | Tags Filed under: News.



TelstraClear is planning a NZ$50 million investment to develop a high-speed wireless network that lets consumers talk and use broadband wherever they are and keep a local phone number.

TelstraClear Chief Executive Dr Allan Freeth says 'Unplugged' will provide a choice to more than 100,000 household in New Zealand and business customers and deliver a range of telecommunications services.

Dr Freeth says the next step is to secure sites for wireless base stations, working with the Tauranga City Council as the initial project goes ahead, to ensure the service is up and running in a year's time.

The investment has been under development for some time and the decision to proceed was aided by recent government announcements to improve competition in the telecommunications market.

'Unplugged' will use 3G technology, which is capable of delivering high quality triple play voice, broadband and mobile services. It has a global development path to ensure customers continue to receive the latest services.

TelstraClear will build base stations in the Tauranga area and a core network in Auckland, so the service can be managed in conjunction with the company's other networks. Exact coverage will be determined as sites are secured.

The company will offer the service via retail stores in Tauranga.

The wireless network will link directly to TelstraClear's national fibre backbone and complement the existing fibre network in the Tauranga CBD.

Dr Freeth says TelstraClear chose Tauranga because it is a growing provincial city from which to launch the service.

No additional information is available on when this service will be extended to other cities in the country.
