No.8 Core and No.8 Xtension plans are specifically designed for the needs of rural communities where ADSL broadband may not be available.
No.8 Core plans offer fast, reliable, affordable wireless broadband in locations where Rural Link has built and operates its own network. This covers the Waikato, from Raglan to Tauranga, Hamilton to Mangakino, but also extends to Hokianga and Whakatane.
No.8 Xtension is available in a range of areas nationwide. The service is transmitted from many of the highest peaks around the country, often from television towers.
While our own No.8 Core network offers the best value for money, the Xtension plans offer much wider coverage nationwide. Check out our coverage maps to see which service is available for you.
