Apologises in advance if someone has asked this before or if I'm asking a stupid question. 

I'm moving to Hawkes bay at the end of the month for at least 6 months (from the UK) and I spend a hell of alot of my time online, watching netflix, facebook, youtube, reddit etc and I would love to be able continue.  

I haven't sorted accommodation yet but incase there isnt wifi wherever I end up I want to organise how I can have good internet access.

My plan was initially to look into an unlimited dongle or mobile phone plan with unlimited usage that I could tether but from searching about it seems there is no unlimited plans in nz?

So Im basically messaging for some advice on what you guys would recommend is the best way for me to get the best internet access I can while Im in NZ?

Thank you

i dont think there are any WIFI/3G/4G providers in NZ that offer unlimited

you would need a fixed line for that, be it ADSL/VDSL/Fibre

you really need to work out where you are staying first

You're right, you're not going to find unlimited mobile plans here. You should look into getting a DSL or fibre line.

Where exactly in Hawkes Bay are you moving into?
