Telecom Rapidly Expands 4G Network Across Nelson


Telecom Rapidly Expands 4G Network Across Nelson

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

Telecom is now delivering faster mobile connectivity to Nelson residents and businesses, by switching its 4G network on in the area today. The 4G network will strengthen the high-quality mobile experience customers already receive through Telecom’s national WiFi and 3G networks.

Telecom Retail CEO Chris Quin says “As more people begin to use smart devices for things like watching video, downloading books, uploading photos and getting the most out of their 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 Nelson 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 give New Zealanders access to the technology they need to get on and do more, and our 4G rollout is a crucial part of this.”

Mr Quin says that so far Telecom customers who regularly 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, or set up a data cap to kick in when their allowance runs out. They could also use the smartphone app to top up their account or save their precious data by using Telecom’s three WiFi hot spots in Nelson.

To find out more customers can visit the Telecom store at 177 Trafalgar Street, Nelson.

Telecom currently offer a wide range of 4G-capable devices including the recently launched Samsung GALAXY S5.
