Vodafone to increase number of 3G cellsites ‘exponentially’

20 Mar 2006

Russell Stanners, Vodafone New Zealand’s chief executive officer, says his company will increase its number of cellsites ‘exponentially’ as it looks to promote its 3G mobile network as a serious competitor to Telecom’s JetStream service. Vodafone New Zealand confirmed last week it had selected Nokia to begin an HSDPA overlay on its network, adding that it planned to use 3G as a mass market broadband service. The cellco currently has 1,400 2G cellsites and a few hundred for W-CDMA.
