Telecom New Zealand Convergence Plans
Posted on 4-Apr-2003 15:43 by M Freitas | Filed under: News


Telecom New Zealand Convergence Plans
Telecom New Zealand released their plan for the “Convergence” experience, promising customers could access any telecommunications services anywhere, anytime.

As part of the “Convergence” plan, including voice services and broadband, Xtra will offer Telecom mobile users the ability to have some of the services delivered over Telecom's network. Telecom is also making it a public goal to have 100,000 broadband connections until the end of 2004. Still, a low uptake in the New Zealand market. The link below takes the reader to a PowerPoint presentation used by Telecom to show their new "vision" of the future.

Xtra is the largest ISP in New Zealand, with over 500,000 accounts. It is part of the Telecom New Zealand group, and works in association with MSN for content.

In New Zealand the major competitors in the mobile market are Telecom New Zealand, with its existing network (+64 25 prefix) and brand new CDMA network (+64 27 prefix), and Vodafone with a GSM/GPRS network (+64 21 prefix).

Since the Vodafone press release about 1,000,000 Vodafone live! subscribers worldwide, we expect to see these services here and in Australia soon. Perhaps Telecom New Zealand decided to go forward and implement its own version of this service?

What will be the next step for Telecom New Zealand?
