If you read the press: http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/1754613/Telecom-CDMA-could-go-4G

Now add that to the 'fact' that Alcatel Lucent is TNZ's partner and they are working with Verizon right now on LTE means the details are building up at a serious LTE potential.

After spending the thick end of $500m on a new network (850/2100 WCDMA) don't underestimate TNZ's wish to stay ahead, and all that CDMA plant is perfectly placed to provide Resource Consent and positioning for LTE.

NealR: ...there is a path to LTE from most cellular technologies....

Don't get sucked into vendor hype about "ease of upgrade" stories.


So on that note chuck it on Trade Me with the following insert.

I don't know for certain but I believe Telecom will slowly start to switch off CDMA carriers to free up spectrum for the more efficient WCDMA XT network. The CDMA network will probably be reduced to single voice and data carrier within 12 months.

The aging CDMA equipment is costing them $$$ millions per year in faults and maintenance, plus ongoing power costs to keep it alive in parallel with the new WCDMA kit, a typical base station consumes between 1-3kW, plus Aircon, transmission, and battery backup. The sooner they get rid of this the sooner they can reduce their OPEX costs.

Look at what Telstra did, they forced everyone to WCDMA with 12-16 months of going live, if it wasn’t for the government holding the show up, it would have been sooner.

Like they did with the original Amps (025) gear they left a couple of carriers open for the die hard AMPS fans.....then one day……gone!!!!!

As I posted earlier there is no plan for the CDMA network to "evolve" to an LTE network. However, LTE is the natural evolution for any mobile network operator and as such LTE is definitely on the TelecomNZ roadmap.

>>> Telecom will begin trials next year to see whether its CDMA network could be turned into a 4G network based on the LTE standard.

@mikerussellnz, this is a misquote. TelecomNZ are NOT looking to evolve their CDMA network into an LTE network.

Good use for the old UHF channels, lets hope that sky get given the shove at renewal time since they have had many many years to put their UHF freq's to good use, and have not done so.

At last someone who understands that LTE will most probably run over a different frequency than existing CDMA/GSM/WCDMA networks. 700MHz seems to be the most likely option however this currently has analogue TV using it in NZ.
