Telecom New Zealand open SMS to the world
Posted on 31-Jan-2004 10:29 | Filed under: News

Telecom New Zealand is set to use technology and services from InphoMatch to help expand the reach of Telecom New Zealand's text messaging network.

The agreement provides Telecom with the ability to exchange SMS messages with a range of carriers with whom InphoMatch has agreements, regardless of what network technology is utilized, including TDMA, CDMA and GSM. It means that InphoMatch is enabling Telecom customers to seamlessly exchange messages with the majority of United States carrier customers.

InphoMatch's inter-carrier network spans four continents (North America, South America, Europe and Asia) and 31 countries including China, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Singapore, the Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Peru, Germany and the United Kingdom. Under the agreement, Telecom will work with InphoMatch to provide its mobile customers with access to these countries, over coming months.

"By opening its texting network to the world, Telecom is offering its customers the valuable option to text with subscribers worldwide," said Neville Street, CEO of InphoMatch, Inc. "This reaffirms the company's commitment to offer its customers the latest in mobile data services. Tapping into this global network will also boost the revenue Telecom New Zealand generates from text messaging."
