Kordia activates first phase of RoamAD metro Wi-Fi in New Zealand
Posted on 7-Sep-2007 09:28. | Tags Filed under: News.



New Zealand network operator Kordia is launching its first two metro Wi-Fi networks in Auckland and Taupo, New Zealand.

The service, called Kordia Metro Wi-Fi, is now available in the Auckland suburbs of Parnell, Ponsonby, Remuera and Karangahape Road and will be available in the Taupo CBD later this month. Kordia’s roll-out strategy will see the service shortly expanding to nearly 20 cities throughout New Zealand.

The metro Wi-Fi network is unbundled and can operate multiple SSIDs. This allows Kordia to wholesale access to a number of ISPs to on-sell to their customers.

Kordia has selected RoamAD to supply the converged citywide Wi-Fi network.

“In partnership with forward-thinking ISPs like Orcon, Tomizone, FIVO, Bunker Media and KiwiWireless, Kordia will be pushing the metro Wi-Fi service out to New Zealand’s savviest end-users from today,” said Kordia™ CEO, Geoff Hunt.

As Kordia’s Metro Wi-Fi network is supported by RoamAD’s optimized wireless networking platform, it is optimized to support mobile broadband data as well as mobile VoIP/VoWiFi. The network can be easily accessed with any Wi-Fi enabled device such as a laptop, PDA or cell phone.

ISPs such as Orcon, Tomizone, FIVO, Bunker Media and KiwiWireless are supporting the initial offering from Kordia.

“Convergence means that New Zealanders want widespread, portable access to the Internet, their email, voice data and more. Kordia Metro Wi-Fi will deliver all that using a low-cost, high-value ‘user-pays’ business model that works,” added Hunt.

Kordia expects strong take-up over the next three years, with a vision for targeted Metro Wi-Fi coverage in every New Zealand city by 2010.
