    Thought Spark would have had NEC close buy due to their historical partnerships going back to the 1960s

    Spark didn't exist in the 60s of course, but NZ post office / Telecom / Spark & Chorus have historically had a habit of regularly changing suppliers. Their Network has used equipment from Nokia, Alcatel, Ericcson, Huawei, Fujitsu, Nokia, NEC, to name just a few.

    In short whatever they've used before means nothing when they are looking for suppliers for the next wave of equipment.
