By PULLAR-STRECKER Tom TELSTRACLEAR will let residential broadband customers surf Trade Me and watch videos posted on its Clear.net portal without that counting toward their data traffic caps for three months, in a move that may pave the way for more tie- ups between carriers and content providers. InternetNZ executive director Keith Davidson played down concerns that it might be the thin end of a wedge that threatened to undermine the principle of "Net neutrality" and reduce the...

By PULLAR-STRECKER Tom TELECOM is expected to confirm this week that it will build a nationwide WCDMA mobile network using its 850MHz radio spectrum, but speculation that long- standing partner Alcatel-Lucent -- and not rival Ericsson -- has won the contract threatens to take the shine off the announcement.

By PULLAR-STRECKER Tom THERE'S been no shortage of backchat from Vodafone and TelstraClear on National's plan to invest $1.5 billion in a fibre network, and a stony silence from Telecom.

This week's entry into the mobile phone market of TelstraClear should go a long way towards answering whether New Zealanders have been held to ransom by high cellphone prices. The Commerce Commission's latest estimate, released last week, puts New Zealand's cellular charges at 30 per cent higher than the OECD average. While they are falling they haven't come down far enough to pull the country out of the top percentile for charges. With figures like these it's little wonder callers are...
