Another one bites the dust: New Zealand closin’ up CDMA shop.

Inhabitants of New Zealand will want to prick their ears up this morning, as some rather interesting wireless news has come to light. Apparently, so many people have chosen Telecom New Zealands’s WCDMA hardware and services that the country has decided the old CDMA network isn’t even worth it any more. The result: they’re shutting it down.

Customers are being told that as early as this October, CDMA roaming will be nixed, with the rest of the 3G network going offline by this November. Talk about speed! If it were here in the US, it would take another half a decade or more. (Remember the ridiculous delays behind digital TV here in the States?) The 2G CDMA network will stick around a bit longer however, continuing operations into 2012.

Either way you slice it, looks like GSM just scored another victory. Another nail in the coffin of CDMA…
