New Zealand's third mobile operator 2degrees Mobile has started to integrate 2100 MHz, 3G spectrum across its new network.
According to 2degrees Mobile Chief Executive, Eric Hertz, this is a significant milestone for the company just 12 short weeks after it launched a brand new mobile service aimed at delivering simplicity and better value for New Zealand mobile users.
“Adding third generation technology to our network means that not only are we able to further increase the capacity on our network, but more importantly we are able to bring our customers new products and services.
“We look forward to bringing these new services to market throughout 2010,” said Eric.
2degrees Mobile was provided access to third-generation spectrum through its foundation shareholder, Hautaki Limited. Hautaki holds a 20 percent share in 2degrees Mobile.
The company's spokesperson Bryony Hilless confirmed 3G service will be available wherever 2degrees coverage is available. The current roaming agreement with Vodafone will be extended to allow customers access to 3G services when outside coverage.
