Having read more into this it would seem that the this is more of a battle for market share in a country where one operator has ~80 market share.

Calls costs over there are now as low as NZ 3.5c per minute, with carriers claiming that margins are now so low they are unsustainable.

Pity that they used this wanky AWS system  like T-Mobile USA does. It may limit the types of 3G fones that can be moved across apart from GSM ones..
