Xtra Wireless was wireless broadband service that existed primarily in rural areas. It has nothing to do with a wireless router at home. To get wireless at home you simply need a router with built in WiFi or add a WiFi access point to your existing router.

This is their wireless Internet connection service, and not your everyday ADSL Broadband connection.

Telecom used to market a wireless Internet service from BCL (now Kordia). Kordia have bought out Orcon, so Orcon are now receiving Telecom Wireless customers.

Normal Telecom Broadband customers are not affected, as they use ADSL and not Wireless as the transmission medium.

Yes you can get a wireless service if you were to have that router within the facinity it supports. The one you pointed out is the wireless service when you are wanting a physical wireless connection to your property which I believe they no longer support. So if you had a xtra wired dsl service you can buy a wireless router to support your 'freedom' within the house/office with your new laptop
