Business Wireless

200+ high sites delivering businesses across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty unlicensed wireless speeds up to 50/20 Mbps and licensed speeds up to 200/200Mbps.

Trusted to provide reliable and fast business wireless for

rural businesses need reliable connectivity now more than ever to maximise productivity and drive profit.

Enabling access to cloud technologies, infrastructure, IoT and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) such as Zoom, Office 365, AWS, Azure, Xero and Salesforce, and SAP has never been more critical.

Lightwire delivers reliable, low latency fibre-like speeds over our resilient Fixed Wireless network that powers some of the most data-hungry and connected rural SMB’s and Enterprises in the Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

Location is no longer a disadvantage to adopting new technologies and scaling your operation.

Unlicensed Wireless

Unlicensed services are lower cost, but those savings come at the expense of speed and performance. Having said that, unlicensed speeds average 50/20Mbps with unlimited data as standard, and all services are backed by our 24/7 support.

licensed Wireless

Licensed services provide faster speeds (up to 200Mbps) and minimise the risk of interference from other wireless services, meaning licensed wireless will have a superior SLA when it comes to jitter and packet loss targets.

Whether you pick Unlicensed or Licensed Business wireless

Performance comes as standard.

What Business Wireless is not


We use P2P and PtMP fixed wireless technology, not 3G, 4G, or 5G cellular. 


Providing fibre to rural businesses is typically too costly and impractical.


Fixed wireless provides lower latency than satellite. 

How Lightwire Fixed Wireless Works

A Lightwire technician installs a dish on the roof of your building that’s capable of receiving signals from a Lightwire tower site on a nearby hill. With a clear Line of Sight (LoS) between the site and your dish, the tower beams radio signals over which data is carried.

A network for more
than business wireless

Unlocking connectivity potential throughout the Waikato and Bay of Plenty with over 200 high sites that power projects like Hamilton City Council’s smart traffic network, Trilogy’s digital mobile radio, and Waikato Regional Council’s IoT Initiatives. 


Your internet speeds and service up-time are our top priority. We guarantee uptime with our Service Level Agreement (SLA) for unlicensed wireless service at 99% and 99.7% for licensed wireless. Uptime stats for unlicensed and licensed fixed wireless services have historically been at 99.99%.
