Voted Best Wireless Service Provider 2021, 2020 (NZ Compare Broadband Awards)

Onboard WiFi,
For Everyone’s Everything.

Every month, a portion of the revenue from each Coastguard Endless WiFi plan goes back to Coastguard to support saving lives at sea.


Plug & Play WiFi

Coastguard has teamed up with Wireless Nation to bring members WiFi you can use at home and in your boat, bach, or vehicle.

It is like having a portable WiFi bubble wherever you go. Everyone’s devices can stay online on your journey and at your destination — phones, watches, tablets, laptops, and eReaders can automatically connect to your onboard WiFi, and stay connected.

Simply unplug it from the power outlet at home and plug it into your boat, bach, or vehicle! Use it year-round or just over the summer.

Testimonial from Coastguard Northern Region CEO, Callum Gillespie: 

“ Wireless Nation’s lifestyle broadband package was quick and easy to set up, just plug it in and away you go. It was great to be connected wherever we were out on the boat, especially in areas with little cellphone coverage. It kept my teenagers happy so I’m happy!”

Put it on hold

While many members use the connection in their home as well, you can put the connection on hold and only pay for the months you require. We’ll just need 30 days’ notice when you wish to put it on hold.


There’s an investment of $299 (already discounted for Coastguard members) for a powerful 4G enabled RBI Modem.

Shipping & Handling: $14.95.

12-24V Adapter (optional)

You can purchase a 12-24V adapter for $69.90 during signup, meaning the modem can run off 12-24V and keep the modem safe from voltage spikes.  Please note: the modem includes a 230/240V wall plug for mains power.

I’ve installed a Wireless Nation modem in my Motorhome and I’ve travelled extensively in the North Island of NZ and I have had excellent coverage and sufficient wifi to do some sports streaming and all of my regular online activities. I’m about to do the South Island top to bottom and back and I’m excited to see how I travel.27th April.I’m nearing the end of my South Island journey which has taken me from Picton to Bluff, from Westport to Hanmer Springs, from Central Otago to Mavora Lakes and all sorts of places in between. I didn’t get any further down the west coast so I can’t comment on Milford and South Westland coverage. However, I’m thrilled with the wifi performance everywhere I’ve been. I only once dropped a signal and a simple reboot of the modem fixed that. I’ve left the modem plugged into 12v lighter plug 24/7 since 2nd February and I haven’t drained the Motorhome batteries especially over night. I’ve streamed Rugby, and some live TV and uploaded numerous large digital photo files without any issues. I’ve done all of my emails, online reading, social media etc without a hitch. Great product Wireless Nation, it fits my circumstances perfectly.

Really happy with my service after other mainstream providers couldn’t or didn’t want to help. I understand this will never be as fast as fiber but I haven’t had an issue with speed or coverage. Was super easy to set up too.

Excellent service and super impressed with the Wireless Nation team.Customer focused, they are accurate and effective in their work. Their service levels are consistantly high. Their connections are stable and provide massive bandwidth at very competitive prices. Consistantly well above 150MBytes/second download, even during busy times. I can honestly say they have revolutionised how I access all the online services I need, locked away at home during the pandemic. Their online portal for customer requests to their service desk is monitored and promptly responded to by Jacob and the team. Great professional commitment and focus. Could not be happier.

I love this product, it's has enhanced my travel experiences as I know longer need to worry about using my mobile phone for data. Plus I can unplug from my motorhome on return from my holiday and use it at home. I no longer need to pay for an internet plan that I wasn't using while on the road. I have had no problems with the speed of downloads. I'm only sorry I didn't get it sooner.

LOOK NO FURTHER, if you are looking for effective broadband in the country then Wireless Nation can probably find the solution for you. In our case it took a couple of SIMs to find a suitable cell tower. The team at WN rock.

Highly recommend Wireless Nation. They gave me internet connection (modem and antenna) in a rural area where no other provider could and their one-on-one communication I found clear, succinct and simple unlike some other providers.
