sbiddle: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!
Interesting point, because I was at Telecom when they were making that decision and had the pleasure of going to an Ericcson demo of w-CDMA out at their site Mt Wellington way. Bloody awesome demo, amazing performance and Mohan Jesudason (sp?) decided that it wasn't the way to go....nothing to do with Lucent flying him the the States to show him how great CDMA was..... So the question is, if he had made teh decision to go w-CDMA back then would there be this huge amount of "mines bigger than yours" crap occuring at the moment?? They did have the option back then and said no...pretty much everyone i was working with could not understand why...
