Telstra: “Call Me Maybe?”

Vodafone looks likely to get some

Major changes in the telecommunications industry will make mobiles cheaper and landlines obsolete, new analysis suggests.

Telecommunications Users Association Chief Executive Paul Brislen says the Vodafone purchase of TelstraClear will make Vodafone a more competitive player in a market traditionally dominated by Telecom.

“While many people are concerned about the sale, it could actually lead to better deals for consumers,” he said.

The sale comes as a new national survey shows that New Zealanders are becoming increasingly reliant on mobiles.

Canstar Blue National Manager Derek Bonnar says more New Zealanders are ditching landlines and mobile contracts.

“Fifty-four per cent of New Zealanders use only prepaid credit on their mobile phones, while 15 per cent of kiwis use their mobile phones for all their calls.”
