Absolutely fantastic company that genuinely cares about its customers. ... We are on a remote high country station and had a weather related outage.

Frequently asked questions about our wireless broadband.

UBB wireless broadband rural is an alternative option for fast and reliable broadband to the rural sector where fibre or DSL services are not available. UBB, as a wireless broadband provider has installed (and still is) their own official government backed wireless broadband solar sites around Canterbury. Coverage ranges from North Canterbury Waimakariri districts, all the way down to South Canterbury Waimate region. These sites use a fibre backhaul generally through EA Networks or Enable Fibre, so that we can prove a fast and reliable internet connection. These sites provide connection to your house or shed on the 2.5ghz or 5ghz frequency. UBB installs a radio (Similar to a sky tv dish) on your roof or at a point where the wireless signal is optimal. Then we run a cable down to a point where the router is installed. With wireless internet it can be easily interfered with if there are things that block the radio's line of sight back to the station it connects off. Things like trees or other solid objects need to be thought about when looking into this service. If you find that you’re not in canterbury there are other wireless internet providers, check them WISPA NZ here.

The main difference between both wireless broadband rural and 4g wireless broadband is the technology. 4G broadband uses the 4g network of cell towers of the likes of Spark and Vodafone to provide a 4g coverage. our rural wireless internet uses our own sites and is a different technology to how it delivers the internet to your laptop or phone. most of the time our wireless internet provides a cheaper monthly solution with more data. But when it’s not available due to coverage issues we recommend using the 4g broadband! UBB also offers 4g broadband plans and fibre broadband plans as well, find out more!

All of our fibre connections are on a 12-month contract. We require 30 days notice to be given to disconnect. If you were to disconnect within the contract period a $100 disconnection fee applies plus you are charged the cost of the base rate for each remaining months left within the contract. For more information please read our term's and conditions.

We support all forms of webmail on our fibre internet. Including Xtra webmail, Yahoo webmail, Orcon webmail, & Farmside webmail. Unfortunately, we have stopped offering our webmail services though. More info can be found here about webmail settings / details: Webmail details.

We always recommend choosing fibre broadband over anything if you can, but we understand most rural businesses in South Canterbury, Mid Canterbury, and North Canterbury don't always have the luxury! That's why we have built out our own wireless broadband network to help businesses stay connected at a fraction of the cost for fibre to be installed in remote areas where the fibre network hasn't been installed.
