Helpdesk Support

Did you know? That although our office hours are Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30pm you can still contact us outside of this.

Just phone our helpdesk on 0800 123 774 and leave us a message, or email

We have staff on standby who monitor the messages and can respond accordingly.

Before you call us...

There are some things you can try for yourself first... like restart your connection, check your account, and check our network status.

Restart your connection, this can resolve 99% of issues

You'll need to reboot all the Primo gear, depending on your connection type this includes the radio on your roof, router, modem and VoIP units. (Note that simply turning it off at the wall won't work properly).

  • RBI, VDSL and Fibre

    Unplug the power cord from the back of the router/modem and leave out for 15-20 seconds before plugging it back in again. It will take a few minutes to reset itself.

  • Rural Wireless

    Find the cable that comes out of the wall from the radio on the roof.  This plugs into a small box (black or white) with a label  that says 'Power Active'.  At one end there is a port named POE, take out the cable plugged into this for 15-20 seconds and then plug back in (you might have two boxes so do it for both).  Don't forget your router (and VoIP unit if you have one) take out the power cord for 15-20 seconds before plugging back in.

That's it - easy!  Give it a few minutes to work its magic and retry your connection.

Check your account and data usage

Log into the Primo Portal 24/7

  • Check your account balance, maybe its overdue and has been slowed down, remember you can pay your account online with a credit/debit card
  • Are you on a capped plan?  Check how much data you have used this month, maybe you need a data top up to get moving faster again (Coming in early 2018 - purchase data packs online 24/7)

Still not working?

Check the Network Status

If there are known disruptions on our network these will be stated on our PrimoWireless Facebook Page. Be sure to follow us so you receive these notifications.

If there are no notifications then please contact us as soon as possible.  If we don't know there is a problem, we can't resolve it for you.


Business After Hours

We provide a free emergency business after hours calling service.   This service is only free to customers paying for business or corporate plans*.  Selecting this option on our phone service will direct you to an on call technician.


*For avoidance of any doubt, the emergency after hours calling service is not free to 'businesses' who pay for a residential plan.
