I heard, from a very strong source, that it is most likely to be: 020

"
Our mobile services are likely to have the prefix '020'

simon_nz90: It will prolly be 023, considering all prefix usually have 2 gaps between them, eg 025, 027, 029

ROFL What about 021....

Theory destroyed

"Considering all prefixes usually have 2 gaps between them"

They ONLY have the 2 digit gap across the board if 023 gets used.

BMW usually give me a free BMW X5.

Its only true if they actually give me one. (Which they dont).

Theory re-destroyed.

bradstewart: 024 used to be the area code for Dunedin

But they lost it due to lack of users, and are now bundled in under Picton.

026 last I knew is the Telecom pager network and 028 I think belongs to Slingshot (something to do with voicemail on their iTalk product I think)

All other 024 are unallocated

025 is all Telecom

0260 is TeamTalk
All other 026 is Telecom

0270 is World Xchange
0272-0277 are Telecom
Other 027 are unallocated

0281 is Econet

Hmm, not sure if anyone posted this link yet...  I'm sure you all know about it though, we being geeks here...

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/search/story.cfm?storyid=0006985B-FEC7-14E2-833483027AF1010F

But hey, it's good news!  I remember moaning back in May, in the thread "vodafone may be regulated by the government", about how even though we have 2 mobile companies, there is a lack of MVNOs in the country which would be great competition and quite easy to implement as well as avoid alot of issues such as huge start-up capital costs!

Well, dare I say, it's finally happening?  Maybe by the end of 2007, we would have quite a few mobile competitors! 

Vodafone and Telecom, with their "we are big and provide the best quality and services" strategy.... 
Orcon with their "we are cheaper than the others and offer bundle deals"..... 
M2 with their "we're new in NZ and we give out lots of freebies now", and finally
Compass with "We provide a no frills, cheap-as, sell sim cards in dairies only with no flagship stores" strategy

Hey, 2007 is looking good indeed!

These new deals are not MVNO's - merely resellers. We're not going to see the benefits in NZ that MVNO's actually offer.
