Satellite Broadband for
Remote Rural Areas.
We specialise in providing internet access anywhere you want it.
Satellite Broadband Plans
Satellite broadband provides internet via satellite. This is delivered to a dish at your house and is available in even the most remote locations.
We have 16+ years in delivering Satellite Broadband to all corners of the country, from Bluff to Cape Reinga, and as far as the Chatham Islands and Raoul Island. Whether your address requires travel down a long dirt road, plane or via boat, we’re experts in reaching the hard to reach, and will get you connected.
Who satellite is suited for?
Satellite broadband is perfect for those who are out of reach of cell signal, VDSL or Fibre networks, and for businesses that require reliability and high uptime.
Who satellite is not suitable for?
It is not suitable for gamers that rely on low ping/latency gameplay. This is due to the signal having to travel to space and back.
Are you a business?
We can offer business and enterprise plans up to 100/20 Mbps, dedicated bandwidth, enhanced QoS, satellite broadband fail-over for fibre, wireless or copper broadband outages, and more. Contact us below for a quote.
How fast is the residential Kacific Satellite service?
Max speeds are up to 40 Mbps download and 5 Mbps upload. This satellite service has 3 priority groups.
Priority 1: data usage up to 200GB per month.
Priority 2: data usage from 200GB to 280GB per month.
Priority 3: data usage above 280GB per month.
Putting the above into a driving metaphor: Priority 1 customers drive in the fast lane without interruption for the first 200GB, then between 200GB to 280GB they can still stay in the fast lane if there is no heavy traffic on the network. However, if everyone started riding in the fast lane at the same time, customers sitting in the Priority 2 and 3 on data usage might experience being stuck in traffic and have to drop to a slightly slower speed.
Neither Kacific nor Wireless Nation can give any guarantees what exact speed you will get on this plan as it depends on how busy the satellite is and atmospheric conditions. You will see download speed anywhere from 200Kbps to 40Mbps – depending on the factors outlined above.
In extreme weather conditions, the signal to the satellite might be lost temporarily. While this is a very good service, we outline the worst-case scenario here to be open and honest and set the correct expectation.
