NZ Communications rebrands as 2degrees Mobile

NZ Communications has rebranded as 2degrees Mobile ahead of its launch as New Zealand’s third mobile network operator in August. 2degrees CEO Mike Reynolds said that the mobile network will provide 97 percent population coverage in New Zealand with its Huawei-built 3G network. The new brand “pays homage to the closeness of Kiwi connections”, the company said. Building on the notion of six degrees of separation between each person in the world, the company claims New Zealanders have a much shorter connection of just two degrees with each person in the country. 2degrees is inviting customers to pre-register for its service at the company’s website.

The UK-based Virgin Mobile group has denied reports that it is looking to team up with New Zealand wireless licensee NZ Communications to help launch that country’s third cellular network. Virgin Mobile marketing manager Nikki Lambert told New Zealand newspaper The Dominion Post; ‘I can confirm that Virgin does not have any current plans regarding New Zealand and is not in any discussions with any operators out there.’ As a reseller Virgin Mobile has launched pre-paid mobile services in markets such as the UK, the US, India, Australia, Canada and South Africa.
