hey i just came to nz a month ago and am staying with my aunt...

so she has a 3gb plan with telecom xtra which is hardly enough for me eventhough i havent been torrenting(yet).

so i like use up the 3gb in 1 week though i used 1.2gb of it only.

Shes too stubborn to change ISPs so i want to know if theres any wireless broadband providers with coverage in hamilton.

i dont care much about speed because in malaysia i have like a 512kbps plan with unlimited usage which costs like 25NZD a month...
but 1mbps minimum

a similar one here costs at least 100-200$?

but for data cap the more the merrier.
 looking for more than 10gb but will settle for 3gb if thats the most i can get.

price less than 100$

wireless broadband providers like woosh which (i think) doesnt have coverage here

Kordia Extend is pretty much your only option i think. Hamilton coverage is 'excellent'
There are probably more resellers, hunt around.

Alternatively if its a long term stay, you could get a second phone line put in and just get ADSL.

Kordia extend isn't cheap, its either really expensive to install or high monthly fees.

Check out . You can also get a second line setup with another provider. If your wiring isnt old you should have 2 pairs in your cabling, so they will just connect up the second pair, or lay some cable from the road if you only have one pair.
