Mobile Broadband

This service provides a great option in the following scenarios:

Failover service working in tandem with a primary fixed line service

Temporary internet connectivity where primary access provisioning is delayed

Temporary office locations where fixed line options are not cost effective

We use the 2degrees network to provide services over the 850Mhz (3G), 700Mhz and 1800Mhz (LTE) frequencies within New Zealand

In Australia we leverage the Optus network's 700MHz spectrum to provide 4G services
