"New Zealanders have been paying far too much for their mobile services" says CEOCFOCTO Steve Biddle. Biddle's aim is to revolutionise the mobile market with innovative products and services never seen before, and aims to deliver 100% nationwide coverage. "We have developed technology that allows us to use every tv aerial and clotheslines in New Zealand as as cellsite, this will give us virtually 100% coverage at launch"
BT has chosen to go with it's 5G technology which is based upon the UMTS 3GPP ELTE (extremely long term evolution) technology that will deliver unparalled speeds for end users who want to download their favourite TV shows and pr0n direct to their mobile handset.
It has also announced plans to give it's service away for free. "IBM (interplanetary business machines) approached us and told us that it would cost $300 million to build a billing system" says Biddle. "We figured without this unnecessary expendature we could pass significant savings to our customers"
A full range of handsets will be available at launch which is expected within the week.
