TelstraClear to start MVNO based on Vodafone network
Posted on 6-Jul-2009 12:38. | Tags Filed under: News.

TelstraClear is set to offer next generation mobile services after signing a three year agreement with Vodafone New Zealand.

The company says this next generation capability enables TelstraClear to build significantly on its current CDMA customer base and to offer competitive whole of business opportunities to the small-medium business and corporate sectors, while also serving consumers.

Mobile and fixed line broadband are the two growth segments in the Telecommunications industry. With a significant share of the fixed line broadband market TelstraClear is now able to offer competitive mobile data services.

“TelstraClear is now in a position to compete aggressively in the mobile broadband market,” TelstraClear Chief Executive, Dr Allan Freeth said.

“Our agreement ensures TelstraClear will have total control over our plans, handset range, customer base and international roaming is assured. Anyone considering next generation mobile or looking for simple, easy to understand plans needs to talk to TelstraClear before doing anything else.”

Vodafone is pleased to welcome back TelstraClear after the two companies ended a previous agency agreement in 2007.

“Vodafone’s advanced network coverage and speed is clearly a major drawcard as all the major mobile players bar one are using Vodafone’s network. The agreement with TelstraClear cements Vodafone’s position in the market as network of choice,” said Vodafone New Zealand chief executive, Russell Stanners.

Existing TelstraClear mobile customers will not be impacted – TelstraClear will continue to sell and support CDMA services and devices for the foreseeable future. With its next generation capability, customers with iPhones and other devices will be able to transfer those to TelstraClear’s service.

“TelstraClear believes in making telecommunications simple. It will be simple to join TelstraClear and it will be simple to understand the next generation mobile services we offer,” Dr Freeth said.
