Telecom New Zealand Lays Plans for ADSL2+
Posted on 24-Mar-2006 10:32 | Tags Filed under: News



Telecom New Zealand plans to start the roll out of ADSL2+ in June 2006, laying the platform for the delivery of Next Generation Broadband (NGB) services in the following months.

General Manager Wired Matt Crockett said the next phase of services were part of the multi-year $1.4 billion transformation of Telecom’s network.

“Telecom has partnered with Alcatel to put this substantial new telecommunications infrastructure foundation in place, taking business and consumer broadband services to the next level,” Matt Crockett said

The NGB services to be introduced to parts of New Zealand this year include high speed broadband services designed to deliver peak download speeds of up to 24Mbps subject to location of customers.

With this infrastructure in place Telecom will be able to offer home based video calling with dedicated handsets and a broadband Internet Protocol (IP) television trial that builds on the in–house trial of IP TV now being conducted among some Telecom staff.

Matt Crockett said these mass market services would complement the high bandwidth broadband offers now available to larger business customers, including One Office which offers broadband connections with speeds of up to 1000Mbps.

A wider transformation of Telecom’s network is underway, and with the infrastructure provided by an all IP network the operator is set to start moving customers onto Next Generation Voice IP services from early 2007.
