Orcon to launch GSM mobile service in New Zealand
Posted on 28-May-2007 15:27. | Tags Filed under: News.

New Zealand-based Internet provider Orcon has signed a wholesale agreement with Vodafone New Zealand which will allow it to launch the countries second GSM mobile service in October this year.

With a range of 3G mobile calling and mobile broadband data plans becoming available in October, Orcon is looking to enter the market aggressively and become a true third player in an industry in which choice has been limited.

This agreement establishes Orcon as a true wholesale operator, meaning they will be offering an Orcon branded set of products delivered over the existing Vodafone network infrastructure.

Orcon already serves just over 100,000 New Zealanders with a variety of internet and telecommunications services.

“The next six to twelve months for us are going to be really exciting, with our new voice switch going live, Orcon equipment being deployed in exchanges under local loop unbundling, and Orcon mobile launching we have got a lot to look forward to. We know that New Zealanders are crying out for a true Kiwi-owned alternative to the incumbent providers” said Scott Bartlett, General Manager of Orcon.
