Pri­moWire­less’ work wins award

Stratford Press - - News - By ILONA HANNE

The team at Pri­moWire­less say they are “in­cred­i­bly grate­ful” for the recog­ni­tion the com­pany re­ceived at a re­cent award event.

Pri­moWire­less won the Best Ru­ral Ser­vice Provider at the 2018 Broad­band Com­pare TUANZ awards, with the judges’ com­ments iden­ti­fy­ing their en­try demon­strated a great in­vest­ment in the lo­cal com­mu­nity. This in­cluded ex­ten­sive spon­sor­ship of com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions and groups with the pro­vi­sion of free use of their ser­vices as well as free Wi-Fi hotspots through­out the re­gion.

The judges’ com­ments de­scribed Pri­moWire­less as be­ing “more than just an ISP”.

Pri­moWire­less brand co­or­di­na­tor Craig Mac­don­ald says they thank the peo­ple of Taranaki for their sup­port.

“We would like to sin­cerely thank the peo­ple of Taranaki, and the amaz­ing team at Primo for help­ing us reach a stage where we can proudly hold up this award as a mark of our achieve­ments so far. We prom­ise that we’ll only get bet­ter at what we do.”

Craig says while the award ac­knowl­edges work done in get­ting fast re­li­able broad­band to even the re­motest parts of the re­gion, it also ac­knowl­edges the con­tri­bu­tion made by Wire­less In­ter­net Ser­vice Providers (WISPS) are mak­ing in pro­vid­ing qual­ity broad­band to all New Zealan­ders.

Pri­moWire­less was es­tab­lished in 2008 to pro­vide wire­less broad­band ser­vices to ru­ral Taranaki homes, busi­nesses and re­mote com­mu­ni­ties which strug­gled to ac­cess fast broad­band ser­vices. The com­pany has grown rapidly and has built its own high-speed ru­ral wire­less net­work across Taranaki from the ground up.

As a re­sult, says Craig, Pri­moWire­less’ cus­tomers are now en­joy­ing the ben­e­fits of con­nect­ing to Taranaki’s only lo­cally owned and op­er­ated Ul­trafast wire­less net­work.
