Hutchison wins market share

19 May 2004

Hutchison Telecommunications Australia said that it signed up its 500,000th customer last month and is now adding 5,000 new users a week. The cellco, which operates a 2G network under the Orange banner and the newly launched ‘3’ UMTS service – said that it expects to finish 2004 with double that figure. Industry analysts believe that Hutchison is now the fastest growing mobile operator in the country, winning market share from its larger rivals Optus and Telstra.
