CallPlus CEO, Mark Callander, says the Vodafone and TelstraClear merger will create new opportunities in the New Zealand market. Callander says in a media statement that CallPlus will be well poised as the third largest telco in New Zealand after the merger. “Based on the Commerce Commission data, the merger will result in Telecom having a 49 percent share of the fixed line market, Vodafone/TelstraClear having 29 percent, CallPlus/ Slingshot with 9 percent and Orcon on 5 percent. “It will be a turbulent phase for the industry and there is potentially further consolidation ahead. This type of disruption creates growth opportunities and CallPlus will leverage this over the next year,” he says. “As the largest remaining challenger in the market we are tasked with a very important job. Not only do we need to continue innovating and driving down prices in the market, but we need the regulator to ensure a competitive playing field is maintained. This is critical for everyone across the country,” says Callander
