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!”

Put it on hold

While many members use the connection in their homes as well, you can put the connection on hold and only pay for the months you require. We’ll just need 5 working days’ notice when you wish to put it on hold (after one-month minimum activation).


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

Wireless Nation WIFI – helping Coastguard keep New Zealanders safe on the water

  • Factors such as the performance of your modem, the distance you are from a cell tower, the network capability, the overall use of that cell tower by other customers, the performance and age of the devices you are using, and your in-home WiFi setup, can impact the speeds experienced.
  • Lifestyle Broadband is a best efforts residential service, not to be used for business purposes. 
  • It can take up to 3 hours for your data to renew from midnight on the 1st of every month — this is due to the large number of connections that need to get processed through the system.
  • You’ll need to be in 4G coverage for the broadband to work.
  • Standard Wireless Nation terms and conditions apply.
