Lightwire is dedicated to connecting communities across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty. We install a small wireless receiver on the roof of your house, which transmits back to the main repeater site – usually located on top of a nearby hill (which is why we need a line of site from your property to the repeater site). To receive fast, reliable, rural broadband please first check to see if you are in coverage.
