Beautiful landscapes and experiencing serenity are a couple reasons on what makes living in rural New Zealand so great. However, it can present some tricky problems when trying to connect to the internet.The roll out of the Rural Broadband Initiative (RBI) by the government only goes so far and there’s always spots with no mobile or standard broadband coverage.

This was the case for James and Fay Cameron, who live in Makarau, an isolated valley in rural New Zealand.

Situated on the Banks Peninsula in Christchurch, PurePods is remote living like you’ve never experienced before. PurePods wanted to provide a unique tourist experience through designing innovative ‘guest houses’ in remote areas. The difference between PurePods and a typical Hotel? They’re made predominantly out of glass, eco-friendly, and are situated in the middle of nowhere, allowing you to enjoy nature’s beauty. 

Remoteness does possess one common issue, and that’s connectivity. Although PurePods wanted to keep true to the ‘living off the grid’ mentality, they needed an internet connection to relay information back to their headquarters situated in Middleton, Christchurch.

Little Acres Rescue Animals (LARA) is a non-profit organisation working with the SPCA that specialises in caring for and re-homing farm animals. Located in the farming community of Te Akau, they provide a valuable service to the local farms and residents. Although the location is perfect for their farm-centric goals, its remote nature means they often struggled to obtain a reliable internet connection, and have to put up without a cell phone network. Enter Wireless Nation, who were able to set them up with a fast and reliable satellite connection, all for a reasonable price.
