Working and learning from home with Woi

COVID 19 travel restrictions and rising real estate prices in urban New Zealand continue to drive Kiwi's to the country. However many don't consider that with that decision comes a major change in the way they get internet. While much of the country is connected to a fibre, fixed wireless or 4G mobile network, some estimate that thousands of homes and businesses still can't get enough speed to conduct functions that those in urban NZ might take for granted.

In Central Otago, Savannah Dantin, who recently started her AUT Masters Degree part time, needed a solid internet connection for classes delivered live via Zoom. The property she lives on has no fibre with only a 2mbps copper connection.

"ADSL is not up to par with what i'm used to. With me online it meant everyone else in the house had to be offline. There just wasn't enough speed for all five of us"

With no promises as to when fibre would come to Speargrass Flat, they started to look around at next best options.

Woi was contacted via our 0800 number and within two weeks we had a 1.2m satellite antenna on their roof. We cabled into the home and activated a wifi router with 50mbps download speed and 5mbps upload speed. The Woi 2 plan is unlimited so Savannah's seven hour daily classes will not exceed any cap. As the family also operates a business they're able to get their internet banking done, run an ecommerce website and manage their online advertising campaigns. For $299 a month it just makes sense.
