Rural Wireless was established in 2012 to specificly provide rural broadband to a small number of local users and has rapidly grown with communities supporting our services.
Hi, I'm Peter, Managing Director of Rural Wireless Limited. I built a home in the Manawata a few years ago and was frustrated and bewildered by the lack of broadband coverage in not only my region but thought-out the rural communities of the central North Island. After looking at the alternatives I decided to setup a small local network with only a handful of customers. The word spread fast and before I knew it we were getting requests for service from all over the region. On our second year of operation we installed a wireless network at Wharite peak covering both the Manawatua and Tararua regions. We acquired our competitor in late 2014 extending our coverage to the Horowhenua giving us a greater reach to our rural communities.
We have recently released our new 'Air Fibre' service which provides customers in the Palmerston North city and surounding areas with wireless speeds as good as and in some cases better than Fibre.
