Boost Mobile V8 Supercars

TELECOM DOUBLES MOBILE PHONE CAPACITY FOR THE BOOST MOBILE V8 SUPERCARS AT PUKEKOHE

To provide service for an expected 80,000-strong crowd at Pukekohe Park Raceway this weekend, Telecom is boosting its mobile phone coverage with temporary equipment.

Never seen in New Zealand before on this scale, 32 V8 Supercars will battle it out in the Boost Mobile V8 International at Pukekohe Park Raceway, 45 kilometres south of Auckland city.

The Boost Mobile V8 International is the 12th round of the 2001 Shell Championship Series and will be held over three days – Friday 9 November to Sunday 11 November.

The spectators, including 15,000 corporate guests, will watch Ford against Holden and Kiwi drivers against Australians on the racetrack.

With such a large number of people attending, Telecom Mobile has installed two transportable mobile phone sites at the raceway to meet the expected increase in mobile phone calls. These temporary sites will more than double the capacity for mobile phone calls for the duration of this event.

Telecom Mobile’s Transportables and Events Manager, Mike Marsden, says Telecom is anticipating high call volumes over the three days from race enthusiasts and wants to ensure its customers receive quality mobile phone services.

Boost Mobile was launched in August this year as a joint venture between Telecom Mobile and leading Australian mobile youth brand Boost Tel. Boost Mobile offers affordable and quality youth-focused telecommunications products. Sponsorship of the action sports scene is a key part of Boost Mobile’s commitment to young people.
