I know we discussed this several months ago but I can't find the thread to add this post.

Orange have announced their CDMA network will be shut down within 2 years.

This is obviously going to cause some issues for Telecom in regards to roaming..

Oh, so Australia will be moving to a 100% GSM/WCDMA environment then? Of course, this can take years (more than two, since Telstra still have to conclude their plans for the rural 3G stuff and CDMA removal)...

Jama: Telecom do not use the Orange CDMA network for roaming.


I realise that. However before this announcement you could have assumed that had Telstra shut down their CDMA network and Orange still had an operational network that Telecom would have tried to gain access to that for roaming.

Since Australia is still the biggest roaming destination it's going to be a big hassle for them having to deal with loan handsets again. We probably will see more dual mode WCDMA/CDMA handsets around but they're only going to make up a small % of total handset numbers.,

Orange CDMA coverage is so small it wouldn't have been worth roaming to. Probably more likely CDMA/WiFi phones.
