Self Install
WIZwireless now offers a self install option for customers with their own gear or our pre-configured gear. More

If you live on one of the many rural properties in our Region and don't have internet or a phone landline or need faster broadband than you currently have, we may be able to deliver broadband internet to you using our wireless technology.
WIZwireless delivers broadband through the air, rather than through your phone line so you do need to "see" one of our many radio masts along the Eastern Hills or click here to get a guide of our coverage area.

Please note that there will also be travel time and/or travel km contribution based on mileage from office to site and back again. Mileage is $1/km.

The equipment and installation for broadband is subsidised to reduce your set up costs and because of that a $276 disconnection fee applies if you cancel your connection within 12 months. All supplied rental/ lease equipment has 12 month warranty for manufacture or install faults. All prices listed include GST.

Need separate Sky or 2Talk subscription not covered by WIZwireless subscription

Rural Zone (RBI) Data Plans
If there is no wireless coverage you may be able to sign up to WIZwireless Rural Zone Plan on Enhanced 4G RBI cellular network instead. 4G service is available on our new 3G/4G ready routers depending on the model and service band available. Service is available on 700/1800/2600mhz 4G services where available.  4G LTE is capable of up to 80Mbps, expected performance is between 20-50Mbps however RBI is rated to an expected 5Mbps downstream, there are no guarantees on speeds delivered, these are best effort only. So ring today to enquire or get more info.

Line of Sight (LOS) check confirmed
As part of your registration we need to check for Line of Sight which is done with a series of office applications so we need to have an accurate physical address. This will give us 90% accuracy that there is LOS to one of our many radio masts. If we are unsure there is LOS due to trees or neighbouring buildings for example, then a physical LOS is required. We will schedule a visit for one of our technical installers to meet with you on site to discuss options. Value $172.50 contribution and the owner must be present to confirm that the "spot" is agreed. Any LOS revisit will need to be charged.

Our wireless network coverage is strictly "Line Of Sight" (LOS) and the proposed site needs to see one of our many radio masts otherwise we have other priced installation options for avoiding trees and nearby buildings etc. They will also discuss with you any other queries you may have in regard to your proposed installation.

What happens if you go over your monthly data plan?
There will be a charge for data over usage - $17.25 GST/ 5GB - ie is equivalent to $3/GB excl GST or you can pre-purchase a bundle of 10GB data by ordering online - (NB data is rounded up to the next 5GB bundle as soon as you go over your chosen data plan)

Additional hardware: On the full speed plan choose one of the selected items as part of the special deal

VoIP Service: (Wifi) (VoIP router)
All WIZwireless subscriptions get a FREE VoIP number from 2Talk who is our supplier. In your welcome pack is a routine to test the quality of the VoIP calls before you decide to use this service. Call WIZwireless office for more information. WIZwireless VoIP service is over the wireless network and needs a power source to operate so is not to be seen as an emergency service. We encourage our customers to have an alternative communication device in these cases eg Mobile phone. This service needs an additional voice router as well as a wireless router plus a DECT or 1.8Ghz portable phone so it doesn't cause interference with the wireless router. All VoIP calls need minimum of 512kbps to work successfully.

Speed of Data Plans
Speeds will vary depending on network traffic and network backhaul requirements at particular times of the day. All connections have CIR 256kbps or higher and MIR in range from 1Mbps up to 50Mbps depending on plan chosen. Standard home personal plans are burstable whereas corporate plans are dedicated speed plans. If you wish to have a dedicated speed plan please click here for more info or ring the office to discuss your requirements. WIZwireless expects all subscribers to respect the data plans they have subscribed too and we have a voluntary daily limit and if we feel excessive data is used in any one day then this plan will be limited so everyone can enjoy great broadband.

iSky Partner
Unfortunately due to changes Sky Network have implemented iSky can no longer be data free for full speed data plan subscribers because their new provider (Akamai) won't supply the IP addresses it will be using. WIZwireless is still trying to work with Sky so our customers can continue to enjoy this service.
