Telecom New Zealand CDMA EV-DO Rev A Plans Revealed
Posted on 11-Oct-2006 18:29 | Tags Filed under: News



The CDMA Development Group (CDG) has issued a press release with information on the rollout plans for Telecom New Zealand's next advanced mobile broadband network update, based on the CDMA EV-DO Rev. A standard.

According to the paper, Telecom New Zealand is on track to upgrade its network, starting in December 2006. Telecom New Zealand will begin offering Rev. A-enabled services in Auckland.

By mid 2007, these services will be offered in key cities across New Zealand such as Wellington, Christchurch, Hamilton and Dunedin. All remaining EV-DO cell sites throughout New Zealand will be upgraded to Rev. A by December 2007.

This upgrade enables operators to deliver average data throughput speeds of 800 Kbps over the downlink and 400 kbps over the uplink, with peak speeds reaching 3.1 Mbps and 1.8 Mbps, respectively.

Telecom New Zealand was the first to bring 3G wireless mobile broadband data services to the country with CDMA 1xEV-DO Release 0.
