Taranaki Veterinary Centre

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."

Director and Sales Manager Brad Craig tells us why the team at La Nuova Apparelmaster like PrimoWireless.

La Nuova is ahead of the game when it comes to technology in the laundry. In 2007 they invested in new plant machinery which necessitated the need to move to larger premises in Inglewood. It’s central location is perfect to service their clients across Taranaki/Whanganui and with over 60 staff employed at the site, mostly from the local area, La Nuova are one of the largest employers in Inglewood.

La Nuova processes over 10,000 garments per week. This is all tracked in the cloud from online ordering, internal department movements - scanning, dispatching and billing.  “As a technology focussed company our continuous improvement requires the need for a good, fast and solid internet provider, without it we would be held back.  We have no server, everything is in the cloud and our phone systems use the internet connection, even our machinery can be remotely accessed from direct from the manufacturers”.  PrimoWireless has provided this service across La Nuova’s Taranaki sites since 2011. 

“As locals we like to support locals, with PrimoWireless we get local service and competitive pricing.  It’s great to talk to someone up the road and not in a call centre in India”

Okurukuru Restaurant

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

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 PrimoWireless

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 PrimoWireless. PrimoWireless 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 PrimoWireless to see if they could do something about it," says Bryan. "PrimoWireless erected a satellite on our farm, which now services 20 other Tarata farmers, so we're all much better off."

“PrimoWireless 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.
