How it all started...

PrimoWireless was established in 2006 to provide wireless broadband services to remote Taranaki communities.  It now provides both wireless and ultrafast broadband services (UFB) to thousands of business and rural customers in Taranaki.

Initially PrimoWireless was developed as a solution to help rural Taranaki people and businesses who struggled to get access to fast broadband services. Knowing that wireless is the fastest broadband technology available to the rural community, IT specialist and managing director Matthew Harrison, set about building PrimoWireless' network from the ground up. As a result, PrimoWireless' customers are now enjoying the full benefits of connecting to Taranaki's only locally owned and operated Ultrafast wireless network.

Since incorporating the business in 2008 PrimoWireless has been growing rapidly which is down to our superior high speed broadband solutions, the high level of customer service we provide and the drive of the people behind the business.


Shaun du Plessis

The Leader of the Pack

Shaun joined the PrimoWireless team at the beginning of June 2014 and now leads the growing team of technicans who install PrimoWireless all over Taranaki.

From time to time you'll find Shaun out doing installs himself, climbing up on our customers’ roofs to put the antennas up, and when he is not doing that he is out and about signal testing and fault finding.

Although Shaun says he loves his job because of our great team, we know it’s actually because some really nice customers make him coffee while he’s out doing an install (and he thanks you all very much!).

Born and bred in New Plymouth, Shaun is proud of working for a locally owned and operated company and believes Taranaki is a special place (“Where else in the world can you Snowboard in the morning and surf till you can’t see anymore?”).

What most people don’t know about Shaun is that he’s a closet photographer and spends most weekends travelling around the region taking amazing photos. We hope he’ll start sharing these on the Primo Facebook page soon…
