Grant17:
nzbnw: Not as such, but there are maps showing EVDO and the EVDO revA upgrade area(s).

See: http://www.telecom.co.nz/content/0,8748,204420-1066,00.html

EVDO Rev0 offers a good experience, and you should enjoy it.

nzbnw

Thank you Sir, that is what I was after Smile.  I had found the EVDO map, but not the Rev A upgrade map.

It will be interesting to try the speeds within Hamilton's Rev A coverage area vs the Rev 0 coverage that I will be using most of the time at Fieldays.  Either way, it will leave GPRS in the dust Cool


UM YUP! enjoy... Make sure you set the card to EVDO only so you stay connected to EVDO. the network will determine other wise!!!

exportgoldman: Time to interrupt the discussion with a basic question. Everyone refers to GSM as the standard worldwide, but I understand the next revision is WCDMA?

So, does WCDMA completly replace GSM? If so, do people simply still refer to it as GSM to avoid confusion?

Is it still a requirement of the WCDMA spec to have SIM cards?


Yes, it's a completely different technology and replace GSM. And yes, it uses SIM cards.

Hate to burst your bubble, but there has been an official statement from telecom stating that the news item on TV3 and in the NZ herald is news speculation and telecom will not be drawn on speculation. A scheduled announcment on future plans was and still is scheduled for late June and they state they are still commited to the CDMA/EVDO network.

Just because there is no comment doesn't mean it's not happening. All shall be revealed on Tuesday apparently.

We will call you on Tuesday... And the news on NZ Herald and TV3 actually came out of Australian Comms Day and Juha's blog.

Everything or nothing - that was the date for the announcement, but we'll see if Alcatel-Lucent/Telecom sticks with it now.

Tuesday has come and almost gone...

Looks like an anticlimax really.

Keep an eye in the NZX announcements. This is just in:


Telecom Corporation of New Zealand Limited (NS) TEL 8 Jun, 2007, 08:54 GENERAL Telecom future-proofs mobile services with new network


Because this is less than 20 minutes old I can't see the full press release yet.

But things are confirmed...

interesting, a WCDMA HSDPA / GSM / EDGE network, that could mean the I Phone is launched on TNZ before VNZ.. well that could be interesting!!

Um, except the rollout isn't due for completion until the end of 2008.
