I am staying at the Army camp in Trentham for a couple of months and was wondering if anyone has had any luck getting a signal with a booster.
Prefer to use Woosh rather than set up Vodafone or Telecom mobile system.
thanks rod

I am in Riverstone Terraces and as far as I know there is no Woosh coverage out here. Your only options would be Telecom or Vodafone for wireless.

There are other options but to be honest they are just far to expensive.

You can check out this page I built a few years ago.

Don't think woosh have built any new towers for years so should still be pretty up to date.

However with woosh you get what you pay for... I wouldn't pay for it, and only use it since it doesn't cost me anything.

I suggest you find someone who already has woosh, try their equipment on the base, and see if it works, then buy a second hand modem off trademe and use their username and password if they let you, as it will be cheaper to up their plan than it will be to sign up a new account..... Otherwise just say no..

If you are looking for more than 1gb, there is the smartlynx3 network which covers upper hutt

I dont quite know how good it is or what you need on the client side but you may want to contact the smartlynx3 people themselfs rather than a retailer to see what is required to connect. They may have a tower close enough for a more portable method rather than a fixed method of connecting.
