Hi all.

 

With UFB only available in Dec-2019 in Easter Hutt Rd, I am looking for a company that can help install, maintain & support a wireless link for a corporate network. Suggestions welcome in the thread, or PM me.

Mattmannz: Do you not have access to copper?

 

According to UFB map, only ADSL is available.

NZ Wireless? Or maybe for super high-end the likes of Araneo/TeamTalk/Spark/whoever they call themselves these days.

 

Maybe Kordia?

 

Or if the ADSL isn't terrible you could potentially get a HSNS circuit - but only up to about 5Mbps.

 

Or you could look at getting a handful of ADSL connections and bonding them with ML-PPP - not too many will do this but not exactly uncommon.

Looks like Araneo have coverage in the Hutt.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

 

Thinking about signing up to BigPipe? Get $20 credit with my referral link.


I fix stuff!

You might still be eligible for business fibre even though UFB isn't available.

Thank you for the suggestions so far.

 

I have in the meantime also found http://www.wispa.nz/wispa-nz-members/. This has brought me to GoWi-Fi installers and GoWi-Fi providers.

 

Linux: That is copper have you checked VodafoneNZ site for access to the HFC network aka FibreX
Yes and phoned them. Only ADSL available from VF.

 

Lias: Looks like Araneo have coverage in the Hutt. 
Cool, I'll give them a call.

Never heard of Araneo or TeamTalk. Thx for the suggestions.
Also never heard of HSNS circuits. Will have to investigate this.

Just be aware that pricing on these sort of connections is likely to make grown men cry when you compare it to "basic" business connections.

Phoned NZ Wireless earlier today already. The person on the other end did say, that even he considers HSNS pricey. But hey, it provides guaranteed service.

Sorry old thread, but this advice might be useful:

 

- If you talk to one of the ISP's that acts as a reseller to multiple fibre carriers (I worked for ICONZ (now part of Plan-B), who dealt with Vodafone, Chorus, Citylink and Vector, YMMV) they can quickly hit up all of the major fibre carriers to see who has service to your address (or near it).

 

Commercial connectivity on fibre _will_ be more expensive than UFB.

 

 

HSNS is another Fibre service (if you get fibre from Chorus, it's HSNS). There's also HSNS Lite (G.SHDSL delivered on copper) which will get you a symmetric service, depending on copper distance you might push it closer to 10Mbit but 5Mbit is a good planning number. 5Mbit symmetric is actually quite a decent amount of capacity 'most of the time'.

 

 

Another option to consider would be to put in an ADSL service for 'just browsing' and an HSNS service for hosted services or anything critical, while you wait for Fibre to come past your address (if noone else has it, UFB will get there... but Eastern Hutt Rd being fairly industrial i'd be surprised if Chorus don't have fibre there?)

 

 

Araneo are part of TeamTalk (it's the same deal).

 

Kordia are the other notable player in terms of wireless delivery options (and you can get 100's of mbit/sec depending on where you are and what towers you can see).

 

 

I'll be interested to know if you had any luck.

Thanks for that. Vodafone gave me an estimate of $25 000. I've phoned both Plan-B and Kordia. Let's see what they have to offer.
