PrimoWireless’ work wins award
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.
