It really depends on how much data you'll require. For light to moderate users, I recommend looking at either Vodafones data services or Telecoms - both offer reasonable speeds around Auckland on HSPDA and EVDO Rev 0 or Rev A.

Fixed or mobile?

There is some reasonably priced fixed 60GHz and 80GHz DMR kit which will do Gig E at up to ~5km now days. Only $35,000 NZD or so.

Innocent Cannot help myself sometimes.

On a more serious note, if you are actually looking at a consumer level fixed wireless service then NZ Wireless/GASP, Wired Country/Compass and Kordia all have coverage of Auckland.

How much do you use every month? Are CDMA (Telecom NZ) or HSDPA (Vodafone NZ) viable alternatives?
