New Zealand IPTV launch slated for late '07

Telecom New Zealand said it plans to launch its IPTV service late next year, right on the heels of implementation of ADSL2+. Local media reports say the company is still weighing the Alcatel/Microsoft IPTV platform as compared to others. The service will be built around the ADSL2+ that will launch in October in the country's urban areas. About half of the subscriber base should see speeds above 10 Mbps.
