Telecom Expands 027 Coverage And Services In Bay Of Plenty, Hawke’s Bay And Taranaki
Telecom Mobile has spent more than $1.45 million to bring its state of the art 027 mobile phone services to more North Island customers.
Telecom has expanded its 027 network with the recent addition of improved facilities in Kairua, Tauranga; Taradale South, Hawke’s Bay and Opunake, Stratford.
Telecom Manager Mobile Networks, Stephen Crombie, says the new facilities will provide more mobile coverage and increased capacity to the growing number of Telecom’s 027 customers in these areas.
The investment is part of Telecom’s national expansion programme of the 027 mobile service. More than 170,000 customers are already using the 027 network.
Customers using an 027 mobile phone, a handheld computer or a laptop, can enjoy the benefits of remote working by accessing Telecom’s Mobile JetStream fast data mobile network. Wherever there is 027 coverage, the network will provide fast access via the Internet to services like email, banking and news services, as well as desktop applications on company networks.
