Family member moving into these apartments, and has come across a deal there offered by NZWireless. $100 install, then $70 per month for 40GB, no term contract. That's naked broadband.
Seems a bit dollar-high.
Posting this in the off-chance that someone here has thoughts / recommendations they'd care to share....
It's not clear if this is an dsl product, which the apartments are wired for, or wireless (wimax?) as the name infers.

Cheers all ............. U.

naked dsl broadband is typically more expensive than when bundled with a line, and wireless in itself is normally more expensive than fixed line- maybe call nzwireless?

Hi, NZ Wireless deploy a number of technologies across the city, mainly wirless to the building (typically not Wimax to MDUs as thats too slow) and a variety of delivery methods within the building ranging from wired Ethernet, wireless, HPNA (on TV system) and more recently deploying DSLAMs in the basement.

I suggest you give them a ring if you want to know more I cannot comment much on the $ only to say most of us are paying much more than that mainly because typical offerings force us to include other unwanted services with the products.

They also have a quite established VOIP offering.

It's ADSL2+ or VDSL2 depending on the plan and hardware.

ADSL2+ has Annex M so delivers up to 20Mbps down and 2.5Mbps up.

Worth it if its that speed. My experience with NZwireless has been pretty good. Apart from the time Terry Seripisos pulled their equipment off a building and we were without connection for 3 days. Anyone remember that and the details around it.

Well, they went with NZWireless. Ordered on day one, installed on day two. Installation took all of 10 minutes. Performance is superb.
