Can anyone tell me what rural Broadband service is available from Vodafone?

Location is Cissy bay
-40.988301, 173.827513

Cellphone coverage is 1 bar near to non existant via Bulwer Vodafone site. 1 Bar inside the house on an Iphone (unusable) -100 on the non bar signal mode. Oddly outside there's also very little to zero signal. As house is shielded by the hill.

Is rural broadband available in this location from this cell site? obviously the install would need a directional external antenna of some type.

Doesnt have to be superfast, anything is better than dialup!!

I've installed RBI in places where there is zero bar signal inside house, so quite possible. Give these guys a call:

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
