Compass plans mobile service launch by March 09 – New Zealand

Compass Communications, a provider of calling and data solutions in New Zealand, plans to launch its mobile service in March this year. The company has entered into an MVNO agreement with Vodafone to utilise its network infrastructure. Compass has started testing its systems with several trial customers live on the service; they are testing the billing and provisioning systems as part of the trial.

Commenting on the development, Karim Hussona, Chief Executive Officer of Compass, said: “Mobile is a new departure and we've got a lot to learn." He added that handset support is one area the company is working on.

Research for the new MVNO Directory shows 3 operators already working as MVNOs in New Zealand.
