Dish Extension

Lightwire works harder to get you connected.

your line of sight

An extension on your line of sight

Fixed wireless connections rely on direct line of sight between your house and our high sites to get you connected.


If line of sight doesn’t exist between your house and our high site, but it does exist on another point on your property, we can set up a dish on a pole to get you online. The pole can be erected up to 70 metres away from your house.

How does it work?

We establish a pole, mount a dish on it, and get it connecting to our high site. The dish will be powered via ethernet, which will run back to the house in a trench that you organise for us.
