Telecom New Zealand TDMA network shutdown schedule
Posted on 20-Mar-2007 19:47. | Tags Filed under: News.

Telecom New Zealand The mobile operator is getting close to the date when its ageing TDMA network is going be decommisioned.

The TDMA network operated by Telecom New Zealand goes under the national prefix 025. The mobile operator offers a more advanced and modern network, based on the CDMA standard, that uses the national prefix 027.

Users still connected on 025 (including on account and prepaid users) are advised to update to the newer network. This can be arranged online, or at Telecom stores.

Some important Telecom TDMA network shutdown notes:

  • 31st March 2007 is the date when this network will be shutdown;
  • From 6pm no incoming or outgoing calls will be accepted (including 111);
  • All calls in progress before 6pm will continue until 9pm.

    The company advises that no upgrades will be processed from TDMA (025) to CDMA (027) after 6pm 31st March 2007, so customers should arrange the transfer before that date. Billing cycles for postpaid customers still using the TDMA will end on the 31st of March 2007.
