Telecom Expands 4F Network to Porirua

Telecom Expands 4F Network to Porirua

Telecom ultra-fast 4G means customers can do more and do it faster on their mobiles

Telecom is delivering faster mobile connectivity for Porirua residents and businesses by switching its 4G network on in the area today strengthening the high-quality mobile experience customers already receive through Telecom’s national WiFi and 3G networks.

Telecom Retail CEO Chris Quin says 4G data speeds are becoming the norm. “As more people begin to use smart devices for things like watching video, downloading books, uploading photos and getting the most out of your music on Spotify, data speeds are going to become more and more important. 4G will allow you to do all these things in seconds, and we think these faster speeds will quickly become the “new normal” for New Zealanders, just as 3G speeds did when they were introduced a few years ago.”

“If you’re a Telecom customer living in Porirua and you have a 4G-capable phone, you’re likely to see increased speed when you’re in our new 4G area. We want to unleash New Zealanders’ potential by giving them access to the technology they need to get on and do more, our 4G rollout is a crucial part of this.”

Mr Quin says that so far Telecom customers who regular use the 4G network generally did not dramatically increase their data consumption. However, anyone concerned about going over their data allowance could track their usage over the MyTelecom portal or Telecom’s smartphone app. They can also use the smartphone app to top up their account or save their precious data by using Telecom’s WiFi network.
Telecom currently have five WiFi hotspots in Porirua situated at Hagley St (opposite McDonalds), 12 Mungavin Ave, Lyttleton Ave, 3 Kilkerran Place, and 1 Serlby Place.
To find out more you can go to the Telecom store at the North City Shopping Centre. Telecom currently offer a wide range of 4G-capable devices including the recently launched Samsung GALAXY S5.
