Hi All

 

My parents have recently moved house into a rural area just outside of Carterton,

 

My Dad is looking for a wireless provider as they want to be able to watch streaming services on there tv, they have no copper or fibre connection. 

 

They would probably use less than 100gb a month easy.

 

 

 

Anyone have a provider they use and like? Also that wouldnt break the bank? Around $80ish?





I'm going to noob myself past judgement

I think its WizWireless that do Wairarapa. Or for that amount of data an RBI product would do the trick too and probably give better top speeds - provided Vodafone coverage is there.

Spark rural wireless is slightly above your budget (120GB naked $96) but may be an option if the others don't work out.

Where in Carterton?

 

Might pay to DM me the address or check on our site. https://www.spark.co.nz/shop/internet/#/

 

 

 

There is a spot that's limited capacity, but most of the city is Urban Coverage which means you will have Unplan or Skinny Available.

Wiziwireless is really the best option here by the looks of it.

 

 

 

Otherwise copper leadin, verge of VDSL which will be plenty for RWC.
