If you have Telecom coverage, you could consider trying Telecom Mobile broadband - but on the coverage map the coverage there looks patchy.

Otherwise satelite?

Hi MacJones,

Have you considered Satellite broadband? Check out wirelessnation.co.nz

Starts from $57 a month, and is true broadband speeds, for those outside the ADSL network.

Cheers,

Adrian Zimmer

Wow wireless nation is an expensive option. Wired country/Compass would be a better option.

Although watch out for the 12 month early disconnection :)  quote - "In the event of early termination of service (within 12 months of initial connection) the remainder of the 12 month contract will be payable."
