Aonet and Inspire operate in this area.

 

Are there any others I should be aware of?

It's the old ThinAir network. Bought by Unleash, then Primo Wireless, then a local guy (about 5 years now I guess)

 

The latest local owner was keen on doing upgrades, not sure how far along they got.

Thanks for that. I will contact them.

 

I am interested in hearing client feedback about any provider. Via PM is fine if confidence desired.

 

I'm looking for 1 or 2 companies I can call on for specific needs. So a good, keen attitude to sales as well as being technically competent is my criteria.

I don't *think* Primo ever owned that, but I think it was run from New Plymouth (where Primo are based).  I could be wrong though.

The owner of Primo is on GZ so I'm sure he can answer that. @MrPrimo

I highly rate both Primo and Inspire. They will both do a very good job for you.

The ISP I will go with is the one who will give me the least risk to my business and reputation, keeping in mind I am on the side of the customer.

 

Whether any of the players understand this part is something I presently have a question mark attached.

Have business experience (wireless, vm and colo, fibre, www and more over the years) with Inspire and they’ve been awesome to deal with.

My former employer had some, err, very particular and slightly out-of-the-ordinary requirements, and once Inspire understood where we were coming from, which didn't take very long at all, they were indeed "awesome to deal with"

 

Two thumbs up!
