Half of Telecom New Zealand mobile network now CDMA EV-DO Rev A
Over half of Telecom New Zealand's Mobile Broadband network has now been upgraded with CDMA EV-DO Rev a technology.

Telecom's GM of Business Products Martin Butler says that the first phase, which began in Auckland last December, is now complete and deployment to the rest of the country has begun.

"The roll-out schedule focused on upgrading Mobile Broadband services in the main cities initially and has now extended to places we identified as high Mobile Broadband usage areas".

Mr Butler says that all the main cities and many of the larger towns have access to the new technology, with plans to have the entire CDMA EV-DO network updated by the end of the year. The network footprint covers 70% of the places New
Zealanders live and work.

Telecom is investing a total of $18.4 million upgrading its Mobile Broadband service. The upgrade increases average download speeds by up to 15 percent and average upload speeds by 500 percent.

Mobile Broadband can be used on PDAs and some mobile phones, and by laptops or notebook computers using a Mobile Broadband data device. Telecom currently has a Mobile Broadband USB modem (pictured) and a PCMCIA datacard
in the market and this month will be broadening its product range to include a Mobile Broadband express card, all three devices will be able to take advantage of CDMA EV-DO Rev a speeds when in an upgraded area.
