Hi ,,,

I heard that calling rate at Telecom will be more expensive than vodafone later on because of updating their connection lines and server. Is it correct? And also what result might come out? Can it affect on the stock market? If anyone have good ideas about that, please reply to me. I am willing to accept your ideas and opinions. Thank you!

I don't know what you're talking about, but IMHO the fact that Vodafone will be offering a local call service in 3 months or so with number portability via their cellular network will have an effect on their share price.  They will start losing customers, not that many since call quality will be lower and it'll be unsuitable for people with computers who want Internet access, but it will happen.

I'm not sure your statement's terribly accurate... Vodafone New Zealand is rolling out a home phone line replacement service that will run on our network. That's hardly going to mean we have fewer customers - quite the opposite I would have thought.

I just reread my posting, and it's not particulary well written, is it?

I'll start again.  Vodafone will be offering a local service that will compete against Telecoms landline service in a few months or so.  People will be able to keep their phone numbers due to number portability.  This is bound to affect Telecoms share price as it will lose some customers.  Not many, my guess is that only people living alone without internet access will become customers.  Also, because of lower call quality (due to using a cellular network) some discriminating customers who might try it will decide not to.  

I think it is telling that Telecom tried to charge an interconnection fee when this idea came out - if this isn't anticompetitive what is?
