Made possible by RBI2

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 Wi-Fi services. Rural Wi-Fi is typically connected straight into the Chorus 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 Wi-Fi 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 instead need to connect to 4G Rural Broadband.

    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!

FAQs

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, you'll either BYO your own Wi-Fi router or purchase one from us for use with the service.

Is there a minimum term?

Nope!

Who owns the equipment?

Install fees only cover labour and travel time. All equipment supplied remains the property of Full Flavour and must be returned to Full Flavour at the conclusion of service.

What's the difference between Rural Wireless and Rural 4G?

With Rural Wireless, you connect to our radio equipment which is installed either on our own towers or the new RBI2 towers that have been funded by Government. Coverage is limited to Bay of Plenty and Waikato sites we have installed.

With Rural 4G, coverage is available nationwide and accesses the RBI1 network that was funded by Government a few years earlier.

More data, including unlimited, and faster speeds are available on Rural Wireless

Can I get even faster speeds?

In most cases, yes. We can do 100Mbps, 200Mbps, 300Mbps or 400Mbps. Be aware the install cost is four figures due to the extra equipment we need to install to accommodate higher speed services.

How far from the tower can I be?

The maximum distance is 20km but in practice you usually need to be closer. 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.

How fast is Rural Wireless

Community Wi-Fi runs at the same speeds as our 4G Rural Broadband with a peak speed of 30Mbps. Note, this is dependent on you choosing the correct plan for your needs, our budget entry level plan has a peak speed of 5Mbps.

What about phone service?

We can activate a phone service that acts similar to a regular 07 landline for $10 / month.
