Good words. Good people.
We are very grateful. Feels a lot more satisfying to be supporting a local ISP who actually listens to their customers.

Now that we have a wireless network inside our home that is reliable and fast, we can all be managing our work, household accounts, homework and keeping in touch with friends and family - thank you.

Lightwire enabled us to HAVE a broadband service. No other broadband provider in NZ was able to, due primarily to our location. Our connection enables us faster more efficient internet service - great for regular Skype contact with friends and family.

I am the Managing Director of a rural-based ecological science consultancy firm in Te Pahu, Waikato. When the company was formed in 2001, we struggled to operate as a rural based business because of the limitations of poor dialup internet connections. I highly recommend Lightwire to anyone considering broadband for business or home.

Living in a rural community we are not exposed to fast internet as most residents in the city. However, this has changed for rural residents in the Whitehall area thanks to Lightwire. I would have no hesitation to recommend this service to other rural customers. A very satisfied Lightwire customer!

We are remote. Lightwire took the time to understand our requirements, gave us performance guarantees and provided a solution that was cost-effective. Our productivity has improved, as well as our customer service levels – Lightwire has delivered.

Your customer service and product costs are outstanding. We have the best internet connection we have ever had since moving to your service and everyone one we know who has changed to you feels the same as we do.
