Telecom New Zealand to launch Xtra Wireless
A few webpages showing a new wireless data services are now showing up on Xtra's web site. Xtra is the largest ISP in New Zealand, an operation of Telecom New Zealand.

Internet traffic is transmitted from towers situated all over New Zealand and picked up at your computer via a special set of equipment, much like an aerial and modem.

The service seems to be in direct competition to Woosh, a wireless data service operated by the company formerly known as Walker Wireless in partnership with Vodafone.

The standard Xtra Wireless Equipment required for a standard installation costs NZ$1000 (incl GST). Xtra Wireless Equipment includes the SIU (Service Interface Unit, Coaxial Cable, Antenna and ethernet cable).

The standard installation service for Xtra Wireless involves setting up the Xtra Wireless Equipment at your location and configuring your PC, which includes a demonstration of Wireless broadband. This service costs NZ$475 (inc GST).

There are a few initial different plans to choose from:

  • Xtra Wireless 1000: 256kbps, 1GB/month: NZ$ 109.95
  • Xtra Wireless 2000: 256kbps, 2GB/month: NZ$ 119.95
  • Xtra Wireless 1000 Plus: 512kbps, 1GB/month: NZ$ 149.95
  • Xtra Wireless 2000 Plus: 512kbps, 2GB/month: NZ$ 159.95

    Users in New Zealand can check this page to check if the service is available in a specific area.
