2 Degrees strikes deal for home-zone mobile service

Flurry of news breaks as 2 Degrees announces launch date

Telecom Wholesale has inked an deal with 2 Degrees for interconnection services for 2 Degrees’ local mobile offering.

However, the pair are keeping the terms of the agreement, under which 2 Degrees will now withdraw an application to the Commerce Commission for a determination on terms for the interconnection services, secret.

"Telecom Wholesale and 2degrees have agreed to keep the terms of the agreement confidential and will not be discussing the deal further," a Telecom statement released today says.

In May, 2 Degrees complained to the Commerce Commission after Telecom initially refused to offer the services.

Home zone plans allow customers to drop their landline for a mobile-only service, with residential rates applying to calls made on a mobile when at home.

Earlier today, 2 Degrees announced it would launch next Wednesday. Vodafone immediately hit back with what it describes as New Zealand's cheapest on-account mobile plan.
