What Our Customers Think

Wireless Nation Ltd.
Based on 408 reviews
Have been using the service for about 6 months around the country, and overall has been great during the off peak times. Using the unlimited off peak plan. Works well every place I have stayed at in Rotorua, outside in the country around Napier, Taupo, and Tauranga, as well as near Albany.Download speeds during the day are usually solidly 30-35Mbps and upload speeds were 10Mbps except for in Albany where I only get around 1-2Mbps.The downside is the service seems to be massively throttled during the on peak time where most of the time I can only get around 1-2 Mbps download. So any online vc meetings after 5pm can be an issue.

I used Wireless Nation for 12 months before my current Telco. They were amazing in the delivery of service, never had any outages, it was seamless and their communications were customer focused. I would highly recommend them and hopefully they will have space for a returning customer as well.

We have had years of problems with standard broadband falling out and slow, fiber will not be an option for us for many years. This is our first month with Wireless Nation and what a difference, we have no issues with coverage and speeds are awesome. Great customer service helped with sorting us out with connecting and getting on the right plan for us, thanks.

Great service, very easy set up. One small issue, my fault, sorted quickly after a phone call. We have installed Wireless Nation at our beach place and it’s perfect for that kind of situation.

We are very pleased with wireless nation as they could give us modem that neither Spark or Vodafone could offer coverage even though they use Vodafone towers.

Wireless Nation has been great to deal with. I received the modem and aerial 4 days after I ordered them. I set them up about 4 days later and we had internet. The speeds we get are about 3 times as fast as our house internet. We use the Wireless Nation modem for gaming in my shed and my son loves it.

We wanted to leave our previous RBI provider because their data allowances were too small and it was very expensive for what we got.We run a business and, due to covid, had school aged kids doing online learning over lockdown, so we were always running out of data a week out from roll-over, and the extra blocks of top ups were costly.Despite asking our previous provider would not increase data allowances over lockdown to accommodate working from home or schooling, and kept telling us to go up a tier in plan. The next tier up was well over $250/month and still metered. The signal often dropped out and the coverage in the house was sketchy.The swap to Wireless Nation went so smoothly - customer service was wonderful and we had our new modem and aerial by courier 24 hours after confirming our sign up.We chose a 2 year contract so the modem etc was free.The change over was easy.We self installed the aerial and modem-replacing our old RBI hardware in minutes. It literally was so simple. A quick swap. Like for like.Our data plan doubled for only a few dollars more than what we were paying, and we kept our home line and number.The service is good for where we are (very rural and RIGHT on the boundary of all coverage) and despite needing to get an extender for the very back of the house, we can get internet access EVERYWHERE which is great.We were surprised and grateful when they gave us 10Tb free BONUS data to account for the covid situation with increased use at home. They actually understand what their customers need and are happy to give it.WN has been an absolute revelation from our previous provider.Highly recommend WIRELESS NATION to anyone suffering high cost RBI at the hands of the bigger *mobile provider* - company. Friendly call centre, fast assistance, great technical advice and excellent value for money.

Wireless Nation provided an immediate professional service. They allowed a trial period to ensure that the connection would be successful in my remote area. The technical advice was thorough and accurate, and the final result is internet that is stable and doesn't buffer.

We have had the very best service and professionalism from WN they did exactly what they said they would do and it cost exactly what they said it would cost. This has enabled us to work from our bach and is life changing. The Whitianga contact was responsive to our requests and spent time answering all my questions, he made me fell welcome and demonstrated a level of professionalism and service that others could learn from. Our previous ISP was arguably the worst service provider in NZ so it was like "a breath of fresh air" dealing with WN. I will support them and wish them well with the business plans. I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
