I'm in the market for unlimited fast speed internet in rural Waikato. The address is on Tirau Road in Karapiro.

 

According to Chorus the only service available is ADSL (6mbps) and I've requested my RSP to complete an NGA on application. I'm not confident this will be affordable though. Are there any service providers in the region who offer fast (100mb up/down) internet plans with no data cap?

I've removed your address from your post. 

 

The answer to your post is simply no. All wireless options come with a data cap.

There are unlimited options available from plenty of wireless providers.

 

You're living in a dream world though if you think you'll get 100Mbps/100Mbps wireless for anything under probably under 4 figures per month, and I doubt you'll find anybody willing to offer unlimited on a 100Mbps wireless connection unless you're willing to pay appropriately for this - ie well into the 4 figures per month.

There will be money to pay for this within reason. Several hundred dollars per month will be fine.

Max usage would be 2TB per month but like everyone's usage this would increase over time.

Lightwire's best plan is 750gb for $179, could have a talk to them about your high bandwidth needs and see if they will do double that amount. It will be dependent on how much capacity their Wireless site has but I can't see them (or any wisp) giving you 100 megabit.

I've spoken to them. Someone was going to call me back as we are a corporate.

Why is your usage so high? That pretty much puts you in the top 1% of internet users in NZ.

I can tell you right now no WISP would want to touch you for an unlimited plan with 100Mbps unless you were probably prepared to pay a few thousand dollars per month!

Hospitality industry. Imagine many rooms full of guests. We use almost 100TB per month across the group.

Depending how much you want to spend, could be worth talking to your telco to see if Fibre is available

I'd be happy to pay one off to get UFB prices like I've done in other locations around NZ

Line of site to anyone with VDSL / Fibre??

 

Feel free to PM me your address, I know the area well.

 

 





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

If you can see Te Aroha ( most places in that area cant ) try Kordia.

 

If you can see Ruru which is pretty close try JDA

It's a very manual process that can often take several months depending on the scope of work required and distance.
