I am asking this on behalf of my father in law.
He lives semi-remote area, in the hills around Kaiteriteri.
He does not have fixed phone line provisioned, although there has been one to his house in the past.
He has marginal mobile coverage, but is willing drive down to Kaiteriteri to get better coverage.
He is looking for a solution to get him online with his laptop that will not give him a monthly ongoing bill.
He has a pre-pay and is looking for something similar to that for data connectivity.
He does not expect to be online much. It could be weeks between connections.
He expects to be viewing the odd trademe auction, google search and email. No Photos, youtube or movies etc.
Any suggestions on which products to look at?
Can you get ADSL is you do not have a land line number provisioned?
Is there a prepay no monthly charge adsl broadband plan?
Would a Vodafone Vodem Stick with no monthly add-on bundle be the way for him to go? It looks like the vodem stick supports 3g extended and it looks like Kaiterteri has 3g extended coverage..
Any pointers, advice or comments would be welcome.
