15 Jan 2015

New Zealand internet service provider (ISP) Wireless Nation has announced that it has doubled the maximum download speed available via its satellite broadband service. Customers are now being offered peak download rates of 10Mbps, up from 5Mbps previously, at no extra cost. The firm says its satellite-based connections are aimed predominantly at users in rural areas which have not been reached by other forms of internet access. Wireless Nation also offers satellite-based voice-over-internet protocol (VoIP) telephone services.
