Callplus And Telecom Sign Wholesaling Agreement


Callplus has signed a new wholesale service agreement (WSA) with Telecom which includes a comprehensive range of Telecom’s residential and broadband product and services.

Telecom’s new wholesale service agreements, launched in February, provides other carriers and ISPs with access to a range of Telecom services including residential and business phonelines, national, international and home to mobile calling and a range of smartphone services.

Last month ISP Orcon was the first company to sign a WSA with Telecom.

Going forward, new products such as unbundled bitstream services will be rolled out as add-ons to the agreement. This will enable other providers to develop their own broadband services by using the Telecom network, rather than on-selling existing Telecom services.

The establishment of the unbundled partial circuits service which Telecom will deliver, ahead of schedule, in June will enable other providers to fill gaps in their network by providing access to Telecom’s data network.

Telecom General Manager Wholesale Services Tim Lusk said this is another step forward in the wholesale market and Telecom is also well advanced in its planning to deliver the unbundled services, which the Government has endorsed.

The Government yesterday announced it had accepted the Commerce Commission ’s recommendation to require bitstream unbundling and the delivery of unbundled partial circuits.
