Fixed Wireless is not

Fixed Wireless is not 5g

Cellular

We use P2P and PtMP fixed wireless technology, not 3G, 4G, or 5G cellular. 

Fixed Wireless is not fibre

Fibre

Providing fibre to rural businesses is typically too costly and impractical.

Fixed Wireless is not sattelite

Satellite

Fixed wireless provides lower latency than satellite. 

Driving rural results for these businesses

rural businesses need high speed and reliable connectivity to maximise productivity and drive profit.

Enabling access to cloud technologies, infrastructure, IoT and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) such as Zoom, Office 365, AWS, Azure, Xero, Salesforce, and SAP has never been more critical.

Lightwire delivers reliable, low latency fibre-like speeds over our resilient Fixed Wireless network that powers some of the most data-hungry and connected rural SMB’s and enterprises in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

Network services you can stake your reputation on.

Livestock Improvement Corporation (LIC)’s networking requirements were quickly outgrowing its infrastructure. Lightwire’s services empowered The Instillery to improve the stability, resiliency, and performance of LIC’s network.

Carrier grade network

Unlocking connectivity potential throughout the Waikato and Bay of Plenty with over 200 high sites that power multiple Scada implementations and projects like Hamilton City Council’s smart traffic network, Trilogy’s digital mobile radio, and Waikato Regional Council’s IoT Initiatives. 

Licensed Fixed Wireless

Licensed services are provided over a unique spectrum in a point to point design, providing speeds up to 200Mbps and mitigate the risk of interference from other wireless services. This design allows us to back licensed wireless services with a superior SLA when it comes to uptime, jitter and packet loss targets.

Availability is dependent on line of sight to a mains fed tower with available space for an additional P2P dish.

How Lightwire Fixed Wireless Works

A Lightwire technician installs a dish on the roof of a building that has line of sight to a Lightwire tower on a nearby hill. With a clear Line of Sight (LoS) between our high site and your dish, radio signals are sent/received over which data is carried.

Unlicensed Fixed Wireless

Unlicensed services are lower cost and more widely available, but do offer reduced speed and performance when compared to their licensed alternative. Having said that, unlicensed speeds average 50/20Mbps with unlimited data as standard, and all services are backed by our 24/7 support.

This is a point to multi point service (PtMP) with guaranteed speeds of at least 20Mbps during business hours. To mitigate the risk of spectrum interference on the public spectrum used, each service is deployed with a business grade dish and additional dome.

Unlicensed Residential Wireless

With a rural NPS score of 53, Lightwire is the premium residential brand operating in the Waikato and BoP.

We provide wholesale layer 3 access to our residential services, providing you with lower service costs and allowing you to handle end user billing and tier 1 support.

Connect multiple Buildings

Need to extend your business wireless connection and network to other buildings on your premise? With our on-site LAN and coverage extensions, we can extend your business wireless connection to provide maximum connectivity.
