Telecom Expands 027 Coverage And Services

Telecom Expands 027 Coverage And Services With Nine New Sites In The Auckland Region

Telecom Mobile has spent more than $4 million to bring its state of the art 027 mobile phone services to more Auckland customers.

Telecom has expanded its 027 network with the recent addition of improved facilities at Bastion Point, Browns Road, Rothesay Bay, Waiheke Island (Onetangi - Korakorahi Point), Maritime Museum, Muriwai Beach, Te Irirangi Drive and Glenfield Shopping Centre.

Telecom Manager Network Planning, Stephen Crombie, says the new facilities will provide more mobile coverage and increased capacity to the growing number of Telecom’s 027 Auckland customers.

Telecom plans to add another new site in the Auckland region to its 027 network by the end of December 2002, on Kaikoura Island.

The investment in the Auckland region is part of Telecom’s national expansion programme of the 027 mobile service. More than 200,000 customers are already using the 027 network.

Customers can enjoy the many benefits of accessing Telecom’s Mobile JetStream fast data mobile network, by using a Mobile JetStream capable phone or handheld device or laptop (plus a modem such as the GTRAN Wireless DotSurfer 3000).

Wherever there is 027 coverage, the network can provide fast access via the Internet to services like email, banking and news services, as well as desktop applications on company networks.
