TelstraClear And Ericsson to Build 3G Network With HSDPA in New Zealand
Posted on 28-Sep-2006 22:54. | Tags Filed under: News.



TelstraClear has announced a multi-million dollar partnership with Ericsson to build its new wireless network in Tauranga, New Zealand. Announced in July and operating under the project name ‘Unplugged’, TelstraClear’s new service promises to make voice, broadband and mobile simple and accessible for homes and businesses.

TelstraClear Chief Executive Dr Allan Freeth says that a July 2007 launch date is possible for the new network, with signal strength testing now completed and sites for the equipment being secured.

The contract will see Ericsson design, integrate and build the network, including service layer, core and radio access.

It includes HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) meaning audio, video and large files or attachments can be downloaded significantly faster. In December 2004, Ericsson was selected by Telstra in Australia as the exclusive 3G/WCDMA partner for up to the next five years.

With a total project cost of NZ$50 million, the service includes the development of a high-speed wireless network that lets user talk and use broadband independently of location, while keeping a local phone number.
