There's a long discussion on Geekzone about this, with mostly "opinions" since people in the know are not talking - smart move since the matter is now before courts.
But twenty days before the action was publicised, I posted something on Twitter about this "interference". Here is the sequence (click the names for the original tweets):
@freitasm (2:50 PM Apr 11th): "I heard that @telecomnz new 850MHz equipment is interfering with @vodafonenz 900MHz frequencies"
@vodafonenz (3:10 PM Apr 11th): "@freitasm not that I've heard. How could it? Like 99FM interfering with 104FM isn't it?"
@freitasm (3:51 PM Apr 11th): "@vodafonenz yes something ike that. Bad filters I hear...."
@nealrich (4:59 PM Apr 11th): "@freitasm like @vodafonenz there are a number of us who would like to know more"
@vodafonenz (5:07 PM Apr 11th): "@freitasm well I've heard nothing like that I"m afraid... who did you hear that from?"
About 20 days before the news about this action came out both sides denied anything about interference. Of course this doesn't prove they didn't know - and doesn't prove they did know.
But it was already a rumour back then, which means if it's really an interference, then someone else knew it was happening. Since this is out in the open on Twitter I think I can publish it here to refresh some people's memories...
The hearing dates for this case will be set Monday 4th May. I am really looking forward to seeing the results of this. Interesting times.
