Rural wireless coming to Waotu, Arapuni, Pukeatua and Wharepapa South

Published: 8/6/20, 5:46 PM

Work is now underway to construct a new RBI2 broadband tower on a hill off Waotu Road that has great views into the Waotu, Arapuni, Pukeatua and Wharepapa South areas.

Once the tower build is complete, the local community will have much improved mobile coverage (4G with 2degrees, Spark and Vodafone) and high-speed wireless broadband with unlimited data from Full Flavour.

Full Flavour's rural wireless requires line-of-sight to the new tower, so if there are obstacles in the way such as hills, trees or perhaps other buildings, you can talk with us about setting up a pole-mounted antenna or an extra repeater on your property. Alternatively, we can offer you for a special deal* on 4G Rural Broadband.

Rural wireless requires us to install an antenna (smaller than a Sky dish) on your roof. We expect to commence installs later in August on a first-in, first-served basis.

Mobile coverage improvements with all three mobile network operators will happen soon and automatically, though to make calls your phone will need to be VoLTE compatible and have VoLTE enabled (VoLTE stands for Voice over LTE/4G). View Vodafone's VoLTE instructions here and Spark's VoLTE instructions here.

We encourage local residents who would like to receive updates on this project to register with us via our rural wireless page.


*4G Rural Broadband special must be signed up to before 20/12/2020.

    Have been with Full Flavour for many years. The help desk is very responsive and helped me gain maximum speeds by recommending and then setting up a new router.

    We have been with Full Flavour since moving into our rural property last year.  They were quick to come out and test the location when we requested, and we have been very happy with their service.

    Used these guys to assist us in supporting a client with an internet deployment. The team went above and beyond in installing many additional pieces of hardware to accommodate a customer with very specific requirements. End result was a happy customer and a stable service. Thanks team!
