Hi - I'm building on a bit of land at Hunua, Auckland. (on the top of a hill).


I have the option of trenching copper up a hill to get basic adsl (which will be pretty painful).


I've been thinking rural wireless broadband may be better - more expensive, but won't have to trench the copper.


Does anyone have any advise on who to choose? (preferably with a home phone as well - as we phone overseas).

I do rural broadband installs for a couple of ISP's. Flick me a message with the address if you can and I can check coverage etc and give you some advice.
Thanks Fraser

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.
