Hi. 

 

 

 

We have a customer in Kumeu able to get 2mbps ADSL or 4G 240GB through Spark. 

 

They aren't really able to survive with that, so I said I'd investigate to see if there were any WISP's operating in that area. 

 

Anyone know of any?

Compass has a fair bit of wireless around Auckland, they might be up that way?

 

Is the data allowance the issue with going the 4G RBI route? Didn't Ultimate Broadband have something like a 500GB plan available? @coffeebaron?

There are a few 3G unlimited plans around, but speed can be an issue on 3G. There are not a lot of wireless provider options now, due to most of Auckland UFB'd out and some good VDSL coverage around. @networkn message me the address if you like and I can do some checks.

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

2.5km from the cabinet, so I have suggested a splitter install, as speeds should be close to 10, maybe a bit more if lucky :) Just depends is the 1Mbps upstream is an issue.

I would check with Stratanet

 

They are doing the RBI2 build for the area.
