Wireless Legacy account specific information


**All fixed wireless accounts that are non Chorus fibre can be suspended on a month by month basis, so if you have a holiday home you only pay for the months that you are actually staying there using it.
Gone for 3 months? Let us know and we will suspend the account. There is no limit to how long you can suspend but its only on a month by month basis. you cannot suspend for just a week or weekend. Call our office if you have any questions regarding this feature.
***All Legacy accounts with data limits can be checked from our portal. All accounts are eligible to have the datacap reset, effectively doubling your data cap. This is done for free up 2 times every 60 days. Thereafter, resets will be at our administrator’s discretion. We urge you to select the correct plan for your likely usage. However, we do not expect anyone to sit on 256k connection for the rest of
the month.


****We have limits because wireless back-haul has limited capacity. We are upgrading areas as we can. With unlimited wireless at present, we can only go unlimited for last mile from fibre connections. As more fibre becomes available at more sites, plan availability will spread.
