Less than 100 days until Telstra closes its CDMA network in Australia
Posted on 23-Oct-2007 11:00 | Tags Filed under: News



Australian operator Telstra has sent out a reminder to its CDMA customers there are now less than 100 days remaining until the planned closure date of the CDMA network.

Telstra Country Wide Group Managing Director, Mr Geoff Booth, said with just 98 days to go until the planned network closure, Telstra was urging CDMA customers to make the switch as time was fast running out and Telstra did not want any of its customers stranded without a mobile network.

"The Next G network is now better and faster than CDMA, and we're encouraging customers to make the move to the new network so they can experience the benefits and features as soon as possible," Mr Booth said.

"By migrating now customers can also avoid any last minute rush, be sure that they keep their mobile number and, if they are using prepaid, transfer any remaining credit.

To encourage customers to make the move the company have introduced a one-off offer of a $100 credit to postpaid CDMA customers who move to an eligible plan on the Next G network from now until 13 November 2007.

Telstra operates a CDMA EV-DO network in Australia, and had finished the roll out of a brand new HSDPA network covering the entire country. The new network replaces the CDMA footprint.

Mr Booth said customers still using CDMA needed to know that the planned closure of the CDMA network remained on track for 28 January 2008.
