Rural Wireless – A local company for local people

Hi, I’m Peter, I built a rural home in the Manawata some 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 to lower 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 covering both the Manawatua and Tararua regions. We then acquired our competitor in late 2014 extending our coverage to the Horowhenua giving us a greater reach to the Foxton, Shannon and Levin region.

In 2018 we embraced a new faster more innovative technology, providing much faster speeds. Our Air Fibre network has now been released to a much larger area providing customers with speeds similar to that of fibre.
