Woosh to expand coverage in New Zealand
Posted on 15-Apr-2005 09:49 | Tags Filed under: News



New Zealand broadband service provider Woosh Wireless has placed an order for an additional 180 UMTS TDD base stations to expand its New Zealand network, increasing the current network three times.

Woosh will use the additional base stations to increase coverage for subscribers as well as to make the service available to new subscribers.

The expansion follows the new round of funding Woosh announced late last year. The company announced that they had passed the 10,000- subscriber mark this year. Woosh currently offers a range of products and services over its UMTS TDD network, with mobile broadband access being the most common service.

In 2003, Woosh became the first company to deploy a major commercial UMTS TDD network.

IPWireless says that UMTS TDD is already commercially deployed and used in several countries around the world, including Australia, Germany, Lithuania, Malaysia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. According to the company, TD-CDMA networks have high average sector capacity, strong cell edge performance, and the lowest cost per megabit of any standards-based mobile technology available today.
