The big question is who Telecom's partner will be. I've put money on it for years that the 3 brand would appear in NZ with a joint Telecom NZ/Hutchinson deal. Pour a little bit of Telstra in the bucket as well and mix it all up and you never know what could come out.. Telcos see no problem now with building networks as a joint effort and it makes sence. Vodafone could finally see some very serious competition.
This is certainly going to be an interesting next 12 months in the NZ markerplace.

I wonder if Huawei won't win the contract to build the network... can't see how Nokia/Ericsson or Nortel could compete there. Telecom will want to build as cheaply as possible.

Long last! Finally they decided on it... 2100 MHz is truly awful, Woosh, Vodafone 3g have all been nothing but trouble.. but 800MHz!
