Vodafone pulls network rollout forward

With Telecom's 3G network launch looming, Vodafone has pulled forward a planned extension of its own network.

The company says it will now deliver 3G services to 97% of New Zealand locations by the end of May instead of March 2010 as previously announced.

Vodafone New Zealand CEO Russell Stanners says New Zealand will be "uniquely blessed" in having two fully built 3G networks and the highly competitive market that will result.

Stanners also said he was excited by changes to the Resource Management Act, introduced by the new government, which will alow such networks to be built and extended more easily.

Vodafone's 3G network currently has 70% reach. Nokia Siemens Networks is undertaking the rollout on 900MHz spectrum.
