I saw econet were going to put cellphone coverage in the main cities, and piggy back roaming off the Vodafone network. Then, some people were whining that the country cannot support more than 2 operators. Interestingly, a Swedish company operating in Finland (Telia Finland) have placed the exact same model that econet proposes to use. Interestingly Finland has more GSM operators than NZ too, yet have a similar population. Although the situation in Finland has changed a little now, as Telia Finland was acquired by DNA recently.
