Hi there, going to Waiheke Island next month for 4 days. Isurf seems pretty reasonable. $5 unlimited internet shaped at 100kbps. I don't really need fast broadband, as long as it works fine for http browsing, and short skype calls. Just wondering. I was looking at their coverage, and the place where we will be staying is right in the middle of the coverage area. However it is in the residental area. I was wondering, would I really be able to get coverage where the place is located, as Wi-Fi routers don't go very far normally, and and the transmitter looks like it's an awfully long way away.

What do you guys think?

Here is an image to give you an example. I circled the area to give you a rough example of where we will be located.
