This was a telling comment I thought:

Will you roll out CDMA service?

"CDMA is like spaghetti. There are too many parts to it. Why do you need it when you have such a clean global standard like GSM? For someone who is already on CDMA, it makes sense to graduate to GSM and may be get out of CDMA eventually. The short answer to that is no. We will not consider CDMA."

If Telecom had a GSM network, we would have true competition in the NZ mobile market with a real alternative for those who wish to use the same phone when they travel around the world.

Just reading in Feb PC World about the relative pricing of Treo 750v (Voda @ $1299) vs Treo 700wx (Telecom @ $999) makes it clear that Voda are ripping us off blind for the privilege of buying a branded phone from an authorised outlet.  And they wonder why people go to Parallel Imported?

Why would anybody expect Vodafone to roll out or continue CDMA, when they have only GSM and WCDMA networks?
They know what advantage global roaming gives them. Thats the only big advantage of GSM and WCDMA.

Yes, they know the advantage, but don't let go their participation on Verizon Wireless. Money talks.
