Last news item I recall was a dispute between Orcon and Vodafone on number portability issues.  Orcon said that VF was dragging its heals, VF said that it used a standard system for NP and it was Orcons fault (or words to that effect).  I've searched Google news but I can't find any reference to these but I think the issue happened 3-5 months ago.  Orcon are running about a year behind the original schedule, they extended it when they decided to add additional features that were a "world first" (I assume that opportunity has been lost).

Unless they have changed it, VF planned to charge Orcon 30c per minute for each side of a phone call (ie Orcon to Orcon would cost 60c/min). 

I think Vodafone have lost a real opportunity here.  If there are 10 cellular companies in NZ, 9 using Vodafones network and 1 using Telecoms, then there would tend to be 90% of the market using VF's network and 10% using Telecom (although this really depended on advertising budgets).  Alas, it looks like it'll never happen Frown.

Think about one thing though, Orcon is now owned by Kordia, and from what I heard Kordia was experimenting with installing their own GSM network too.




I finally have fibre!  Had to leave the country to get it though.
