Are we going to have 3G in New Zealand, courtesy of TelstraClear?

Posted on 28-May-2003 07:53 | Filed under: News


TelstraClear holds one of the 3G licences in New Zealand, and is now issuing a RFI for network suppliers to build a new, small 3G network.

According to New Zealand Telecommunications Act, carriers can rent capacity out from other networks. But before they can do that, they've to build at least 10% of their capacity.

Currently TelstraClear offer mobile solutions in partnership with Vodafone. Telstra is an Australian company, and Clear was a BT telco bought a few years ago by Telstra.
