Australian Communications Minister, Helen Coonan has passed the job of deciding in accordance with a recently imposed draft licence decision on when Telstra can close its Australian CDMA network mobile network to Australian Attorney General Philip Ruddock

Attorney General Philip Ruddock has accepted the licence, meaning Telstra now needs permission from the Federal Government to shut down the CDMA network.

Telstra has maintained for some time that CDMA network would be shut down on the 28th of January 2008.

Here we go again. Just the same as the analoge network. If CDMA is shut down, 10 kms past Ravenshoe NQ no mobile phone will work. Peter.

Yes there are many people who are saying with out CDMA they will not have acess to mobile coverage in Aussie.

Telstra's own spin site is an interesting read

Good luck Telstra, you will need it!
