Statement on Commission Mobile Market review

We agree that pricing, coverage and choice of mobile services are all trending positively for New Zealand consumers. New Zealand is ranked number two globally in the GSM Mobile Connectivity Index 2018 across infrastructure, affordability and network performance.

The Commission has identified that competitive conditions currently enable MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) to enter and compete in the market and identified two new entrants have recently announced MVNO details. Vodafone is delighted that MVNO, Kogan, is partnering with us, who will offer further choice to consumers.

The mobile market is competitive and healthy, with retail prices well below OECD averages, 98.5% population coverage, committed investment to extend coverage even further, three national competing networks, and 5G on the horizon that will deliver even more innovation and competition in the market.
