Hey Google: now that you're looking at getting into the spectrum business, there's an auction coming up in NZ and we'd love to operate on the terms you're proposing (by "we" I mean the end users of course).

Pleae squash our comparatively tiny telcos like bugs and reinvent the playing field here!




A time-poor geek is hardly a geek at all

It's a shame the 700MHz spectrum is never going to be available in NZ (due to UHF TV).. It has the potential to be the best frequency for future wireless services.

450MHz would be even nicer.   TeamTalk has some of it.

   There is quite a lot of cyberphone activity in 450MHz in various countries now.   Propagation is excellent and NZ has a lot of rural areas.
