Commission receives application from Vodafone


Commission receives clearance application from Vodafone Mobile

The Commission has received a clearance application from Vodafone Mobile NZ Limited to acquire the management rights for 20 years in the radio frequency range between 890 MHz and 899.8 MHz, together with the corresponding natural pair management rights in the 939 – 944.8 MHz range from the New Zealand Government.

On 23 July 2002, the Ministry of Economic Development, on behalf of the New Zealand Government, began the auctioning of management rights and licences, issued under the Radiocommunications Act 1989, to radio spectrum in four bands.

Vodafone Mobile is the owner of radio spectrum rights in the 900 and 1800 MHz ranges and the 1.9 and 2.1 GHz ranges. The 900 and 1800 MHz frequencies are used to operate the current GSM service offered by Vodafone.

In considering the application under the Commerce Act, the Commission’s role is to determine whether the acquisition has the effect of substantially lessening competition in a market.

A public version of Vodafone Mobile’s application will shortly be available on request from the Commerce Commission. Please contact Catherine Best, (04) 924 3654.
