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. We connect Rural Wireless straight into the local rural fibre network and is super fast.

Because it's operated exclusively by Full Flavour, we've been able to customise plans to suit a broader range of households.

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 Taupō, Rotorua Lakes, and South Waikato. Our expansive network caters to diverse communities, including Lake Tarawera, Tumunui, Ngakuru, Waikite Valley, Ātiamuri, Horohoro, Reporoa, Broadlands, Tirohanga, Whakamaru, Mangakino, Tokoroa, Wiltsdown, Waotu 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 300GB and Go Fast Unlimited plans, installation is free!

On our Business plan, installation is $1000, again 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 $10 / 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?

We advertise 20Mbps+, as we test the connection is capable of at least 20Mbps at the time of installation.

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 (2022), is over 100Mbps.

20Mbps is sufficient for multiple household members to be streaming TV simultaneously.

Speeds vary across the wireless network and can vary from customer to customer. For example, a customer closer to one of our repeaters will see faster speeds than a customer further away.

Unlike other satellite and 4G technology service providers, we manage our network carefully, being careful not to load too many customers onto any one repeater, and are continuously upgrading repeaters and capacity.

It's now typical for our installers to see speeds over 50Mbps at the time of installation.

How fast is Business Rural Wireless?

We advertise 100Mbps+, as we test the connection is capable of 100Mbps at the time of installation.

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 (2022), is over 100Mbps.

The main difference between the Go Fast and Business plans is with Business, you aren't sharing the wireless connection with your neighbours - we install a dedicated antenna on our tower for you.

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.
