It is very clever and I posted this to my Twitter last month sometime.

The author just got wrong on why Telecom had to go with CDMA, and got it wrong on the third one as well.

My work friends and I thought this was quite funny, especially for it's inaccuracy. We felt that someone must be very threatened by the new mobile network we are in the process of rolling out, to go to such lengths.

What impresses me is the production quality of this clip, looks to me like someone has commissioned their advertising agency to do a hit job on Telecom (and funnily enough, their handset supplier) ... shame they got so many basic facts wrong (mind you when has the facts ever got in the way of a good story?) At the end of the day, all this video clip says to me is that having real choice (e.g. multiple WCDMA/HSPA providers) in the NZ mobile market is probably panicking a certain mobile provider into deperate acts such as this.... So the big question is, why are they panicking so much?

Yes but they would also be stupid not to deny making them!

Who knows!

NO 1 BIGGEST PILE OF CRAP!!!

So GSM was widely available when Telecom launched AMPS ...DAAAAAA not

CDMA was a Home grown network technology & they could have built a GSM network instead.......DAAAAAA Not

T3G was a network.....DAAAAAA not

Telecoms w850 network is not the world standard..... DAAAAA not infact there are 27 networks already in operation and 10 x more handsets available for this network than any other low freq 3G network

Telecom has actually finally made the right decision!

What an utter pile of rubbish from either the running scared red team or some other soon to be out dated network...

Unbelievable!!

Telecom is not going with GSM... WCDMA and HSPA+ are not GSM. These are completely different technologies. Read my blog post explaining it. GSM is old technology.

As for why Telecom went with CDMA it has to do with the spectrum available at the time Telecom had to move.

Gart2010: Hey Heres a Question why did telecom  go with all the older technologys for. and why cdma and not GSM now they are going with gsm after all this time well so we here


Telecom are not going GSM.

The simple over simplified answer why Telecom never deployed GSM in the past? Over the years when Telecom have made their technology choices they have never had spectrum capable of deploying GSM on with the exception of 1800. There is no bad decision by Telecom.

Edit: inserting the word never in my sentence above makes a little more sence! Smile

Telecom are not going GSM.

The simple over simplified answer why Telecom (never) deployed GSM in the past? Over the years when Telecom have made their technology choices they have never had spectrum capable of deploying GSM on with the exception of 1800. There is no bad decision by Telecom.


Don't forget that there was no GSM at the beginning.
