Full Speed Broadband

Netspeed Rural Broadband connections run as fast as your link will allow (up to your chosen data cap). For more information on connection speeds, check out our how fast is full speed article in the Support Zone.

No Fixed Term Contracts

Our standard Rural Broadband plan has no fixed contract. We are so confident that we offer the best internet options for rural areas once you've tried our services, you won't want to change! All monthly payments are due in advance by direct debit.

No Phone Line Required

Rural Broadband connections don't use old copper phone lines, we connect you using 3G and 4G LTE. If you do need a phone service, check out our phone plans.

Wireless WiFi Router

All Netspeed 3/4G Rural Broadband plans use a wireless router so that you can connect your laptop, tablet, smart phone or any other WiFi enabled device without using a network cable.

Soft Data Caps

We warn you when you are approaching your data cap and you can choose to either reduce your connection speed and pay no extra, increase your plan or just exceed your data cap and pay the excess data charge ($2 per GB).

Is this for me

Our Rural Broadband solutions are a great step up from old poor performing satellite broadband or copper line broadband connections. If you need even faster broadband talk to us to see if Wireless Broadband or Fibre Broadband is an option in your area.

Static IP Addresses

Static IP addresses are standard with all Netspeed plans at no extra charge, so you can set up your very own hotspot, private or public game server, web or email server and lots of other cool techy stuff. That's just one reason why we are the best internet provider for rural areas.

Free Email Accounts

Netspeed members can have 5 email addresses complete with virus and spam filters, POP3, IMAP, SMTP and Webmail services.


We can connect you almost anywhere in New Zealand. Getting broadband in rural areas is dependent on local availablity, however you don't need a clear line of site to one of our transmitters.

Check our national broadband coverage map below and if the answer isn't what you'd hope for, give us a call to discuss our signal booster options and if you need internet on the move, talk to us about our mobile broadband accessories.

Hardware Kit

You will need to purchase one of our 3/4G LTE wireless modem/routers for $300, if you are a bit further away from the transmitter you may also need an external antenna priced from $150.

You can purchase the equipment outright or we can often arrange a rental or term payment package for approved Netspeed members.

Installation Costs

If you don't need an external antenna you will be able to self-install.

If you do need an external antenna you can install it yourself or if you would prefer us to arrange an installer to do it for you installation costs start at $250 and depend on the complexity of the installation.

Connect on our existing network in city or rural areas in Northland, Auckland, Waikato, Bay of Plenty, Gisborne, Hawkes Bay, Taranaki, Manawatu, Wellington, Nelson, Tasman, Marlborough, West Coast, Canterbury, Timaru, Oamaru, Dunedin, Central Otago, Wanaka and Southland.
