Behodar: Is a Telepermit still required?
Edit: According to the site, it is.New Zealand law states that "a person may only connect equipment to a network or anything connected to a network that is owned or operated by an operator who has agreed to the connection" (section 106, Telecommunications Act 2001). Telecom's agreement to the connection of any equipment is shown by Telecom issuing a Telepermit.
In other words, you'll need a Telepermit in order to legally connect the phone.
