CEO, Stephen Hopkinson, tells us why the team at Taranaki Veterinary Centres like PrimoWireless

"Primo helped us to connect our five Vet centres (in Stratford, Hawera, Manaia, Patea, Waverley) to their ultrafast and wireless broadband services. So now we can run our businesses wherever we are in the region. They also connected our Hawera office to their back-up redundancy service, so when ultrafast fibre was cut, our wireless back up automatically kicked in. We were able to carry on working as normal which was fantastic! Their advice on how to set up our internet connection was bang on and tailored for our business' needs. Having a local service provider also means if things go wrong, they'll come down and help and their friendly technical team are just a phone call away. We recommend them to any local business - especially those with multiple sites like ours."

Rob McEwan runs the extremely busy IT Consulting Division for Baker Tilly Staples Rodway in Taranaki. His team look after many businesses throughout Taranaki, to ensure they have the right IT products and services to help their business run as effectively as possible. And when it comes to choosing an internet service provider, Rob recommends Primo to his clients every time.

“Having fast, reliable broadband is essential for every business today, which is why we recommend Primo to our customers. We use Primo ourselves and not only is their service great, but because they have a redundancy, or back up feature, we also don't have to worry about our internet going down. We believe every business in Taranaki should invest in an internet redundancy. So if you can't afford downtime, then we recommend that you talk to Primo."

Head Chef and Business Owner of Okurukuru Restaurant, Sohnke Danger, tells us why he likes PrimoWireless.

Two years ago experienced Taranaki Chef Sohnke Danger had PrimoWireless' wireless broadband installed for at his home in Okato. He'd tried other internet service providers before, however they didn't specialise in rural braodband and the connection was slow and often didn't work in bad weather. PrimoWireless helped him to banish these problems and Danger quickly became a fan.

When he acquired Okurukuru Restaurant, Danger didn't hestitate to call in the PrimoWireless team to connect the business to faster broadband.

"Having fast, reliable broadband is crucial to our business. We host a lot of conferences and our customers expect us to provide them with the latest technology and equipment as well as superior service"

- Head Chef and Business Owner of Okurukuru Restaurant, Sohnke Danger

Superior service is vital to the success of Okurukuru Restaurant and Danger believes that PrimoWireless provides the best customer service in Taranaki.

In our industry, service is very important to us and we like that it's important to PrimoWireless too. With PrimoWireless we get fantastic service, from local people who care. Getting broadband to this building wasn't easy, however Matt and his team found a way. And while there's never been any problems, we know we can call Matt in the team up if anything went wrong and they'd be here to fix it in an instant.

Okurukuru Restaurant is open for lunch and dinner on weekdays. To make a booking or find out more about Okurukuru, please visit their website.

Tarata Sheep Farmer Bryan Hocken tell us why he switched to Primo

Running a farm in a remote part of Taranaki has its challenges. And getting access to fast and affordable internet services is one of them. Many farmers have simply given up the fight and have either accepted the fact that they will pull their hair out when trying to use their slow dial up services or have done away with the internet all together, which leaves them feeling even more isolated.

However as Bryan discovered, Taranaki farmers can now access faster and more reliable wireless internet services, thanks to Primo. Primo have built their own wireless network, which nearly goes right around the mountain and enables farmers in remote parts of Taranaki to access better internet services.

“Our internet used to be far too slow and expensive so we got in touch with Primo to see if they could do something about it," says Bryan. "Primo erected a satellite on our farm, which now services 20 other Tarata farmers, so we're all much better off."

“Primo helped us to get faster broadband at a better price. These buggers won’t pull the wool over your eyes! Managing the business side of my farm is now more efficient, magic and really reliable regardless of the weather.”

- Bryan Hocken, Tarata Sheep Farmer and local character.
