Mobile and home phone convergence reaches AsiaPac

Seeker Wireless‘ General Manager of Sales & Business Development, Andrew Grill, contacted me this week to let me know that the UK based Aussie outfit has successfully deployed their proprietary sim-based mobile location service technology through Vodafone New Zealand. Called “home zone” in Europe but re-branded “local zone” in the home of the world’s 2nd best rugby team, the service effectively turns your mobile phone into your land phone whilst you are physically located within a certain radius of your home.

Customers will be charged the same rates as they would via their land line. It’s a great service and one that further reduces any residual dependence upon using the landline phones of old.

For more information, Vodaphone NZ have a press release on their site.
