Two Degrees Mobile Ltd
Two Degrees Mobile Limited is New Zealand’s newest full service telecommunications provider. It launched in 2009, significantly lowering the cost of mobile for Kiwis, but has actually been around a little while longer.
Back in the 90s a visionary group of Maori challenged the crown through the Treaty of Waitangi and won the rights to 3G spectrum. Despite financial and regulatory adversity a Maori Trust (Hautaki) was established with the challenge of launching New Zealand’s third mobile network.
Since then, Two Degrees has been busy. It has the backing of a unique partnership of international and Kiwi investors that has enabled it to build a brand new mobile network, helping us to cover 97% of the places Kiwis live and work. In March 2015 it also acquired NZ’s fourth largest ISP, and now offers broadband services as well as mobile to Kiwis across the country.
