Gisborne Net brought the first Internet service to Gisborne in 1995.
Dial-up connections were replaced with broadband wireless to deliver a reliable high performance, high speed network for the East Coast Region.
Gisborne Net uses a land based microwave radio network to deliver fast, low cost internet. We provide fast broadband connections throughout the East Coast and Wairoa regions.
Our Network of repeaters provides coverage to most areas of the East Coast, Gisborne and Wairoa Regions. However you will need to contact us and check that your property has line of sight to one of these repeaters.
Installation charges vary depending on the area and complexity of the installation. Contact us for further information.
Gisborne City uncapped data plans start from $65 + GST per month. Rural plans start at $75 + GST per month for uncapped data. Business and School plans POA.
All Gisborne net plans are uncapped.

2. Do not connect cables to the WAN or Internet ports
3. Wifi routers should have DHCP switched off

We are constantly expanding the network and adding repeaters so we will note your interest in our database and contact you should the situation change.
Alternatively, if your community wants fast uncapped broadband service and there is no Gisborne Net service already available, it may be possible to provide a jointly funded solar powered repeater for your area. The proposed repeater site should have good line of sight to all properties requiring service, and to one of Gisborne Net’s Network repeaters. read more
