TelstraClear may return back to Vodafone – New Zealand

According to market speculations, New Zealand MVNO TelstraClear is mulling a return to Vodafone. The development is assumed to be influenced from Telecom’s decision to block resellers from accessing its XT mobile network, thus confining them to the CDMA network.

In August 2007 TelstraClear had signed a deal to resell connections to Telecom’s CDMA network after the end of its agreement with Vodafone, which resided with a margin dispute. In October 2007 Telecom then announced that they would not give resellers access to its new XT network until 2011.
