Vodafone renews 900MHz licence

16 Feb 2009

Vodafone New Zealand has renewed its 900MHz licence until 2031 and has also completed spectrum swaps which open up frequencies for new market entrant NZ Communications. A report from CellularNews quotes Communications and Information Technology Minister Steven Joyce, who said: ‘Network operators can now make long-term investment decisions, which will bring us better services and technology such as mobile broadband, and intensify competition – ultimately lowering costs for consumers.’
