New MVNO Digital Island launches in New Zealand
New Zealand company Digital Island is planning to add mobile phone services onto its existing range of voice and data products for the local business market.

The mobile services are being offered after achieving a commercial mobile deal with Telecom Wholesale.

“Digital Island's ability to offer mobile as part of our business product range is crucial,” General Manager Blair Stewart said. “With the addition of mobile, Digital Island now offers a complete suite of telecommunications services for its target market of medium-sized New Zealand businesses. A key reason behind our decision to partner with Telecom is our strong existing relationship along with their proven ability to deliver wholesale products to the NZ market.”

Telecom Wholesale CEO Matt Crockett said “New commercial products like MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) are important additions to the Wholesale product portfolio as they allow our customers, like Digital Island, to develop their own whole of business propositions. We have been discussing mobile with Digital Island for some time now, and I am delighted to be partnering with them for the pilot and test phase of the project”.

Digital Island’s mobile services will be sold, serviced and billed directly by Digital Island. The initial product will be on Telecom’s CDMA network with a commitment to migrate onto Telecom’s WCDMA network within an appropriate timeframe.

The company says they will have their own number range, but with number portability there will be the possibility to accommodate customers wishing to move from other networks.

The handset range will include models from Samsung, Sanyo, Nokia and Blackberry.

Digital Island will carry out a two month pilot with existing customers beginning in April, followed by a full commercial service from July 2009.
