Could anyone point us in the direction of any ISP Providers able to supply broadband 20mins drive south west of Waipukurau. We are moving there at the end of this year and are having trouble finding info. Possible only satellite available and not even sure of that. Thanks

Put the address in to the Chorus SAT first and see what might be available via fixed line.
Then maybe have a look at www.swiftnet.co.nz and see if they can get a wireless service to you. Others on here might know of other wireless providers available. That is just the first one that showed up in google.
If wireless isn't an option then check out the vodafone site for RBI coverage.
Failing those options satellite will obviously be available but is very expensive for the kind of service you get.

Taylor Communications have clients as far south as Hautope Road of of Mt Kahuranaki
Visit www.ruralkiwi.com and submit your details on the contact us page
We are also about to build a transmitter at Omakere next month and planning on one at Porangahau by Xmas

Also centralines are currently in negotiations with a couple of companies about providing a service where RBI has failed.
Taylor communications has been shortlisted - so you may want to pay attention to the newspaper - announcements will be via the CHB Mail
