Full Speed Data means we do not throttle at Wireless Nation. The average peak hour speed is 31 or 38Mbps download, and 14 or 23Mbps upload, depending on where you are. Actual speeds may be faster or slower, depending on your distance to the nearest tower and how many people are using that same tower simultaneously. Speeds are from the Commerce Commission’s Measuring Broadband New Zealand (MBNZ) June 2024 report.

 

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.

Maree and I have been with Wireless Nation for over 5 years and we use our router at Whitianga, Great Barrier, Auckland and away on our boat. Our site on Great Barrier Island has very weak reception and Wireless Nation were very proactive resolving these issues with 2 external aerials. Several years ago when we had issues the Vodafone in Whitianga they arranged a Spark SIM for our router for use there.They have always been great to deal with when we needed help.

I've been with Wireless action for many years and have been extremely satisfied with them. At the time of joining, they were the only firm that could give me what I wanted. There have only been a couple of times I've needed assistance, and the people I were in contact with, were very friendly and helpful. A great firm to be involved with.

We are fulltime motorhomers using the portable WN wifi and we have had amazing coverage. We stayed a few days at Poutu, south of Dargaville where the manager told us there was very poor internet service. Once parked up and online it never dropped out at all. We had a problem with our TV satellite dish and were watching freeview online in some remote places with no issues. Very impressed. The deal works out cheaper than our original provider so when we do return home we will just take the modem into the house.
