Neville and Jenny Rosengren - Geologist from Bendigo

Neville and Jenny Rosengren - Geologist from Bendigo


When Neville and Jenny Rosengren decided to move from Bendigo in Australia they looked at a couple of areas before discovering the beauty of the Wairarapa. The former Awadale homestead in a secluded valley near Tinui was on the market and they fell in love with it – but there was a catch.

Neville explains: “I forgot to ask about the internet to begin with. When I did ask the real estate agent said there was no broadband available, because of the location satellite and ADSL simply wouldn’t work.”

Neville, a geologist, was the Head of the School of Earth and Environmental Science at La Trobe University in Bendigo and since the school was closed down he has become a consultant mostly doing environmental impact reports for developers. He goes to Melbourne at least once a month and the rest of the time has regular contact with his clients and other organisations via internet. He often has to send and receive large files like maps, plans and images.

“The real estate agent said there was a local broadband business who might be able to help so we rang WIZwireless”.

“Bridget Canning came out and said “You’re in luck!” We could get a line-of-sight wireless connection to a transmitter on a far hill as long as we put the receiver high up on a tall tree!”

“We bought the house and Scott clambered up the tree like a monkey and installed the receiver.”

A long cable connects that to the router in Neville’s office further down the hill. They can then pick up the wireless signal from anywhere in the house.

“We needed reliability and speed and that’s what we got. It is as good, if not better, than anything we had in Australia.”

John’s enthusiasm is palpable: “One night recently I was viewing the Tarantula nebula, it was a really clear night, the image and the internet speed was so good that people thought it looked 3-D. It was incredible. Man, it was magic!”

“We barely had dial-up” Sarah says jokingly “we could be doing the banking and the speed would slow down to nothing and we’d have to start again.” ...

“We have a heavy emphasis on research, both for product development and for sussing out the market, and we need a good internet service. We simply weren’t able to do all the research and development work that we’re doing now before we had WIZwireless.”

“We used to have Telecom broadband but WIZwireless is a lot faster. We’ve had it for about two years now, it was easily set up and it has never given us any grief,” Clive says.

Becks explains.
“If I didn’t have the fast internet here I simply couldn’t run my design business. The internet is important for doing research and for sending files to clients and suppliers.
