We are pleased to announce the installation of our new Wharite transmission site which now gives us greater coverage to both the Manawatu and Tararua regions.

I carried out a few range tests on the weekend using an AirGrid antenna at ground level at distances in excess of 40km and was amazed on the stability and throughput.

Anyone out there missing out on rural internet, give us a call as we'd love to help you.

I think that '2G Wireless' is a very unfortunate name. It infers slowness.

How did you pick that name for the business?

Uses 2GHz?

Pretty sure you guys don't have the managed park spectrum up those ways.... but could be very wrong ;)

EDIT: I do like your pricing!

It's a good price for wireless. Having said that, nitpick time! :D

http://www.2g.co.nz/plans-and-pricing.html lists speeds in "Mbp/s" which means "mega bit pico per second". You probably mean Mb/s :)
