Telecom New Zealand expands roaming for WorldMode phone
Posted on 19-Apr-2007 17:05 | Tags Filed under: News



Telecom is joining with Hong Kong based CSL to deliver overseas roaming to New Zealanders.

The company has announced an agreement with CSL which will see Telecomís WorldMode coverage extend to over 180 countries internationally.

The three year agreement which comes into effect mid this year is initially for voice and texting services and will extend to mobile data before the end of 2007.

The deal will ensure a one number, one mailbox, and one bill solution for Telecomís WorldMode customers, and will be important for business customers who require mobile roaming flexibility.

Details of pricing for WorldMode roaming will be released in mid 2007.

WorldMode handsets have a standard Telecom number and function as a normal Telecom mobile handset when in New Zealand. Unlike most Telecom handsets WorldMode phones have a SIM card and this allows access to overseas GSM networks if no CDMA network is available in that particular destination.

The first WorldMode handset was released last year and at least four more devices will be launched this year across a variety of price points and with a variety features. Smartphones and PDAs with WorldMode capability are also going to be introduced.
