Hi Im on a port waiting list with TCL  tried the unbundle isp like orcon and vodafone but had issues with cabnets with telecom ,trying to find a cheap wireless provider while I wait for that call :D im in the newish subdivision in favona mangere , woosh is unavaliable , gonna try compass communication.
The radio mast is located somewhere at otahuhu powerstation so Im not that far. I have to to be line of sight , standing point where I live I cant see the radio mast , but could be a good chance on the roof may view it so question is if cant not be viewed in anyway most likely It wont work?

Any other options?

Has to be Line of Sight.  

We have 3 customers in Mangere alone all using Compass Wireless and all have good line of sight from on their roofs. 

Easiest way to know is put a connection request in, and if they can see the tower, and get a good signal to noise ratio etc.  they will connect it there and then.  If on the other hand they can not supply the service they will not charge you. 

I find that Compass Wireless is a very very good service.  The uptime is great, and the latency is awesome.  We have a 3M/1M connection here and seem to get that 24hrs a day.
