Plug & Play WiFi

Coastguard has teamed up with Wireless Nation to bring members WiFi you can use at home and in your boat, bach, or vehicle.

It is like having a portable WiFi bubble wherever you go. Everyone’s devices can stay online on your journey and at your destination — phones, watches, tablets, laptops, and eReaders can automatically connect to your onboard WiFi, and stay connected.

Simply unplug it from the power outlet at home and plug it into your boat, bach, or vehicle! Use it year-round or just over the summer.

Testimonial from Coastguard Northern Region CEO, Callum Gillespie: 

“ Wireless Nation’s lifestyle broadband package was quick and easy to set up, just plug it in and away you go. It was great to be connected wherever we were out on the boat, especially in areas with little cellphone coverage. It kept my teenagers happy so I’m happy!”

Year-round Service or Flexible Holds

Most members use this connection at home too, but you have the added flexibility to pause your plan when necessary. We kindly ask for a five-day notice for plan holds, and there’s a minimum activation period of one month each time.

Reactivation is quick and easy and can be completed in 3-5 working days.

Modem

There’s an investment of $299 (already discounted for Coastguard members) for a powerful 4G-enabled portable modem.

Shipping & Handling: $16.95.

12-24V Adapter (optional)

You can purchase a 12-24V adapter for $69.90 during signup, meaning the modem can run off 12-24V and keep the modem safe from voltage spikes.  Please note: the modem includes a 230/240V wall plug for mains power.

The modem featured may vary from the actual modem supplied.

I have been a WN customer for a while and I have to say that the switchover from my previous provider to WN was super easy and seamless. The internet service itself works great and its combined with their amazing customer service.I also recently had the upgraded fibre pod modems installed for better connectivity in my home, and I am truly blown away by its elegant look, minimalist profile and improved faster connectivity. 5/5!Thanks Wireless Nation!

I have had a great experience with Wireless Nation, great service, easy to use app and best of all the connection is so much better than what I previously used.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I run the modem off 12-24V?

Yes, the modem can run off 12V.  It comes with a 230/240V to 12V wall plug for mains power. If you want to run the modem off your battery/cigarette lighter plug we recommend you buy our 12V Adapter add-on – this will keep the modem safe from voltage spikes.

It also works out at sea and in most holiday spots, towns and cities.

How much power does it use?

Maximum power: 12V-2A; 24Whr

Nominal power: 12V-0.5A; 6Whr

Both plans are suitable for dual HD streaming simultaneously and support WiFi sharing with multiple devices for Googling, Emails, Facebook, Spotify, YouTube etc.
