Rural broadband coverage expanded every month

Rural Broadband Initiative 2 (RBI2) is underway and involves Government funding a new entity called The Rural Connectivity Group (The RCG) to build over 400 new broadband towers across New Zealand.

In the local areas where Full Flavour operates, we are working with The RCG to install new Rural Wireless services. How our rural internet works is we extend nearby rural fibre to you via our wireless repeater, which makes our service super fast.

Our Rural Wireless service is operated exclusively by Full Flavour, which means we can customise plans to suit a broader range of households, without the overloading problems of competing 4G services.

Rural Wireless does rely on line-of-sight between home and tower. If a tree or even worse a hill is in the way, then that home will not be able to get service and will need to look at alternative installation options, such as a Local Repeater or Solar Repeater.

Full Flavour is dedicated to providing high-quality internet services to key districts such as Rotorua Lakes, South Waikato, Taupō, and Western Bay of Plenty. Our expansive network caters to diverse communities, including Ātiamuri, Broadlands, Horohoro, Lake Tarawera, Mangakino, Minden, Ngakuru, Ohauiti, Omanawa, Oropi, Pyes Pa, Reporoa, Tirohanga, Tokoroa, Tumunui, Waikite Valley, Waotu, Wairoa, Whakamaru, Whakamārama, and Wiltsdown among others.

What areas do you cover?

Our repeaters are located throughout the following districts: Rotorua Lakes, South Waikato, Taupō and Western Bay Of Plenty. Lodge a free signal test request from us to check.

Is there a minimum term?

Yes - we require 30 days notice to cancel a service and a 6 month minimum term applies.

How do you supply the service?

Our technician will install a 47cm dish (smaller than a Sky TV dish) on your roof and a broadband outlet inside your home for your home Wi-Fi router to plug into.

Will I have Wi-Fi around my home?

Yes, we provide one as part of the service.

Who owns the equipment?

As the installation of equipment is included in our monthly plan charge, all equipment supplied remains the property of Full Flavour and must be returned to Full Flavour at the conclusion of service.

Is there an installation fee?

On our most popular Go Fast 150GB and Go Fast Unlimited plans, installation is free.

On our Business plan, installation is $1000, to cover the costs of accommodating new customers onto this service.

What about phone service?

We can activate a phone service that acts similar to a regular 07 landline for $15 / month. For service to continue to work during a powercut, you'll need to purchase a small UPS.

How far from the tower can I be?

The maximum distance is 15km. We have strict technical parameters to meet in order to provide this service reliably so upon reviewing your address we'll use our tools to estimate your signal levels. If you're beyond 15km, you may talk to us about establishing a solar repeater on your property. We also have some repeaters that due to

What if my house can't see the local tower?

In this case we do offer a Local Network Extension product, assuming another building on your property can see the tower. Otherwise, you can talk to us about installing Solar Repeater.

How fast is Go Fast Rural Wireless?

On our data-capped plans, speeds are limited to 20Mbps.

On our Go Fast unlimited plan, we proudly offer speeds of 20Mbps or more, ensuring that you have a reliable and speedy internet connection.

This is more than sufficient for multiple members of your household to stream TV shows or movies simultaneously without any buffering issues.

When it comes to uploading data, such as sharing photos or videos online, you can typically achieve speeds ranging from 10Mbps to 20Mbps.

It's important to note that the speeds may vary depending on factors such as your proximity to our repeaters. If you're closer to one of our repeaters, you'll likely experience faster speeds compared to those who are farther away. We continuously upgrade our repeaters and overall network capacity to ensure consistent performance.

Unlike other providers that rely on satellite or 4G technology, we take great care in managing our network to avoid overcrowding on any particular repeater. This means that you can enjoy a more reliable and stable connection.

In addition to speed, please understand that latency, or the time it takes for data to travel from the internet to your home, is crucial. That's why we offer a low-latency service. With our setup, most customers connect back to the internet via just two wireless hops - up the hill and then down to a fibre internet connection. This helps minimize any delays and ensures a smooth and responsive internet experience for your farm operations.

How fast is Max Speed Rural Wireless?


We don't set any artificial speed cap - your connection can run as fast as the wireless technology will allow, which at the time of writing (2023), is over 100Mbps.

Can I get even faster speeds?

Yes, up to 1Gbps! Be aware the install cost for faster plans is $10,000+ due to the extra equipment we need to install to accommodate higher speed services.

What about my cowshed?

With Full Flavour’s half-price cowshed broadband connection, you can get the most out of your farming business. From the power of agritech to having access to weather updates, having a cowshed broadband connection is essential for having a successful farm.

You must have a primary (full price) plan with us to be eligible for the half-price cowshed offer.
