Telecom New Zealand extends CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev to Wellington CBD
Telecom New Zealand is switching on its CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev A cellular data network in the Wellington CBD today. The service has been active in Auckland CBD since 12 December 2006, and will be activated in the Christchurch CBD on the 27 February 2007.

Martin Butler, Telecom New Zealand General Manager Business Products says other centres will see the service by June 2007, including Hamilton, Dunedin, Tauranga, Auckland, Wellington, Porirua, Queenstown, Wanaka and Christchurch. The company plans to have all current CDMA 1xEVDO Rev 0 cell sites upgraded to the new system by the end of 2007.

The new technology provides 10% - 15% increase in current CDMA 1xEV-DO download speeds, with up to 500% faster uploads, making it ideal for users with large documents to be sent over e-mail while working away from the office.

Users should be able to achieve an average download speed of 800 Kbps (kilobits per second) with average download speeds of 300 Kbps. Peak speeds will be available depeding on external conditions.

Currently users are able to connect to the service by using a Sierra Wireless Aircard 595, which requires a PC Card slot on a PC. In the near future other options such as Express Cards and USB modems will be avaialble.

Telecom New Zealand currently offers Mobile Broadband plans with 1GB (gigabyte) allowances, plus virtual private network services for companies.
