Rural Waikato Gets New Broadband

In partnership with the Government’s Rural Broadband Initiative, Woosh has announced it is providing rural Waikato customers with quality broadband and a range of flexible broadband and calling plans effective immediately.

Woosh General Manager of Operations, Richard Fry, says the company has used its experience of servicing rural Southland for the past eight years and is delighted it can now offer rural Waikato a broadband service that provides flexibility coupled with excellent value.

“Woosh now offers the widest range of rural broadband and calling plans on the market, with a plan to suit different customer needs, says Mr Fry. “Our highly competitive range of broadband plans feature transparency and the ability to move between plans at no extra cost. In addition we have worked hard to ensure customers are not disadvantaged for exceeding their data allowance, a common issue for many customers. Our extra data offering is the most competitive on the market.”

Woosh’s mobile installers ensure an efficient and effective installation process. Installation costs are also extremely competitively priced starting at only $114 for a standard install on an Unlimited Off-Peak plan or $229 for a standard install on its alternative Rural Broadband plans.

Waikato customers can find out if this service is available to them by calling 0800 4 WOOSH or online with our rural broadband coverage checker. Woosh is New Zealand’s top rated broadband provider for customer satisfaction (, has a 100% New Zealand based team and has extensive experience and a commitment to rural New Zealand.
