Telecom confirms CDMA closure date: 31 July, 2012
Posted on 30-Jun-2011 15:37 | Tags Filed under: News



Telecom has today confirmed that its CDMA mobile network will close on 31 July, 2012, following previous statements that the network would be maintained until mid-2012.

Since the launch of the XT mobile network in 2009, Telecom has said it would close the CDMA network around mid-2012. While the CDMA network will continue to operate as normal until then, after the closure devices on the CDMA network will not be able to make or receive calls and texts, or use data.

Telecom Retail CEO, Alan Gourdie, said Telecom is committed to providing a smooth and straightforward transition for CDMA customers to move to the XT network well in advance of its closure.

“We have a number of communications, offers and support available over the next 13 months. Starting tomorrow, we will be in touch with each one of our CDMA customers directly to give formal notice of the network closure, and to advise them of our plans and answer any questions they have,” said Mr Gourdie.

“CDMA customers can keep their phone number, their contacts and any existing credit when they sign up to XT.

“In order to assist customers we have developed a range of XT handset offers exclusively for CDMA customers, a number of which cost $0 upfront. These offers are supported by a range of attractive plans.

“The handsets come in a range of options to suit all types of users, and include familiar brands so customers are able to find a phone that works like the one they’re used to,” Mr Gourdie said.

Gen-i is also working with its clients to ensure that they are aware of their options well in advance of the CDMA network closure. Business clients should contact their Gen-i client manager for further information.
