Has anyone here had anything to do with http://www.amuri.net/ for wireless broadband?

We are looking at using them when we move to Eyrewell, North Canterbury. (we are heavy internet users with home business and use 80Gb+ per month)

His biggest plan is 10gb and has extra data 10gb data blocks avaliable but you could probably work out a deal to get 80 at a discounted rate.

Also is fibre fed so I would say that speeds are what you expect - which is usually the case with the smaller microwave isp providers.

Well I have been speaking to Chris @ amuri.net and also Dale at gowifi.co.nz and both have been really helpful. I have purchased the gear to get connected In the end I went with the following setup

Ubiquiti Bullet2HP 802.11b/g 800mW Outdoor AP/Bridge
2.4 GHz 24 dBi Die-cast Grid Antenna
Coax-Seal Hand Moldable Plastic Weatherproofing Tape
Ubiquiti POE-24 24V DC PoE Supply
Universal Antenna Mount Long
Cat5e Ethernet Lightning Surge Protector


It will be about 40km line of sight from where we are to the top of the gondela where the transmitter is.

I will let you know how I get on

Bullet 2 with a 24dbi grid for a 40km link?
That means your maximum legal transmit power to be programmed into the bullet will be about 14db - anything higher would be illegal - you might want to check on this.

I would have thought they'd be using 5ghz so you can use a higher transmit power.

Just thought I might post a quick update on this topic - after I bumped into my own thread when googleing for Amuri.net

We did not end up going with amuri for wireless at home due to being unable to get line of sight south east back to the gondela and to many hold ups and uncertianies with how long it would take for a repeater to the north of us to be active. So we went with Scorch, before moving to ADSL when it became avaiable

More recently I have been dealing with Chris and Sam at Amuri about a different connection and have ended up getting a RBI 3G connection, we faced a few chalanges due to our semi unique requirements for the connection. But Chris and Sam were great help, The connection has now been up and running well for 1.5months and is going well

I would highly recomend that anyone who is looking for broadband and does not have ADSL in their area considers Amuri as a good option
