cyril7: Yep, Telecom have taken a hit on the popularity stakes, but I guess there is no doubt that Alcatel Lucent are the real ones with egg on their face, its their gear, their support, their problem to sort at the end of the day.
Guess the question is, how many other 3G networks of this level have Alcatel implemented worldwide?, how many failures at this kind of level have Nokia, or Erricson had to deal with?
Someone here did mention AT&T in the US and their 3G is not too good either..
Telstra in Ozz uses Ericsson as their network provider. Telecom NZ should have stuck with Ericsson or NEC for the W850 build..
