Are there any wireless internet providers for out Rangiora way. I'm right in the township and can't seem to find a company that does wireless for us. Want to get rid of our stupid waste of money landline.

Any suggestions. The Woosh site says i cant get woosh out here but there hopefully is someone out here.

Have a look at Wireless Web Looks to be 802.11 so it will be much lower latency and faster than Whoosh

Works out about the same price as getting wired broadband with ihug (who im currently on dialup with) and no where near as fast. Woosh was going to work out fantastically if they had been out this way. Might just have to bite the bullet and get wired broadband and keep the stupid landline. Bugger.

Thanks for pointing out wirelessweb though somewhat.

Have you checked if you're in range of Xtra Wireless or any other of the Kordia Extend resellers?

Thanks for the suggestions. Have emailed Woosh asking if they have plans to bring wireless out this way. But if not may just go to a wired broadband with Ihug.
