Saturn And Telecom Reach 0867 Agreement

Saturn and Telecom announced today they had signed an Internet Traffic Agreement covering 0867 calls.

0867 is the new service introduced by Telecom to allow significantly improved network management of Internet traffic.

Saturn Chief Executive Jack Matthews said; "We are pleased to reach this agreement with Telecom that recognises that Internet traffic should be treated differently than traditional voice calls. This agreement will enable both Saturn and Telecom residential customers to access ISPs on either of our networks with no local call charges. We believe this will continue to encourage Internet growth which is an important objective for Saturn."

Telecom Chief Executive Theresa Gattung said Telecom was pleased with the Saturn agreement. "This is our first 0867 agreement with another network and is a significant step towards ensuring Telecom can continue to manage Internet traffic efficiently."

Ms Gattung said; "It is perhaps not surprising that Telecom's first network 0867 agreement is with a carrier which is a player in the residential local access market and which has first hand experience of the growth in Internet traffic".
