While surfing the Telstra Australia website, looking for an update on their planned closure of their CDMA 1x network, I couldn't help but notice, there are no longer any references (that I could find), to the closure of their CDMA 2000 mobile network.

This is in contrast to a few months ago, where the Telstra Australia website, did contain a brief paragraph about the CDMA networks closure.

Just woundering why all of a sudden Telstra have seen fit to 'mute' their website on this issue??

Thats because the Aussie Gov. ordered the CDMA closure to be put on ice.

Mauricios comment here: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?contentid=6636

"If you are talking about the Telstra decision to phase out their CDMA network, then better read it again - they put the plans on hold."

There was another comment on the forums somewhere and an article i read on Google news.

see article, they have speed bumps with the roll out,

I would imagine they will get past this but Telstra have followed the smoke and mirrors example of Vodafone on new technologies. blown too much up it's rear end,

Their is still scope for a the CDMA network with a large EVDO foot print now to be purchased.
