telecom is a sponsor for cambell live. Do u think they'll stream it live? cuz vodafone streams prime news live. I saw telecom started to advertise on Juicetv. I think its because Vodafone are a sponsor of C4's "vodafone select live".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't all of Telecom's existing video content sourced from state television? It seems quite ironic that they would sponsor Campbell Live.

Campbell live is not a good candidate for a launch into live tv on a phone. Its not fast paced enough - they focus for up to 10 -15 mins on one story (or more sometimes), where as typical news (a la Prime news) would focus for closer to 1 - 2 mins on a story, which for me, would be much more watchable on a small device.

Telecom seems reluctant to do anything involving live video (tv or calling) until they can do it really really well (vs Vodafones 'pioneering' approach).

Both have their advantages and disadvantages...

Hey.

I do believe they're working on getting coverage so this service could be used in other places except for town where you don't live lol.

I would be supprised if not.

They are ahead of Vodafone with anything to do with Broad-band, they just do not show it.
I heard they have the ability to move to 4G, but for hopefully obvious reasons do not.

Pantechowner not sure where you got your info from about 4G but I would not trust it. 4G is still in the lab.

4G is along way off before its commerical

Jaffa: 4g will be in nz in 2010, untill then expect to see a max of 70mbs out of evdo or evdv. 4G will be 200mbs+ in some cases.


Unless things have changed recently Telecom have said they will not be going down the EV-DV path. Many other CDMA operators including Sprint have also made the same decision and it's pretty much a dead duck now.

Its a shame Nokia through all their resources at EVDV instead of EVDO. I really like Nokia phones.

I only hear little bits about various areas.

I had heard that they have the CABABILITY to move to 4G. As in last post, it is obvious that they could not do so anyway. Do question this from my behalf though! lol

Ya'know the whole most expensive cell charges and slowest Broad-Band in wherever thing?
Can anyone tell me when Telecom increased the Braod-Band speed just recently, what was needed to be done in order for this to happen?

Threats of regulation?

The way things are going - 4g might be a while off. I don't really see 3G 'taking the country by storm' yet.

You're right. Moderate blow about 3G and nothing really happening.

I personally don't use it yet, although Telecom like to say I do with sending video PXT, which is Voda 2.5 anyway lol.

The only thing is the speed, and nothing else has REALLY came from it (of great importance, or that doesn't just use the speed anyway) in my opinion that I can think of right now.

Everyone in the world will have this capability, as long as you have the money and ROI to do so...
