Lightwire was founded in 2006 as a result of a single issue: Dr Murray Pearson could not source a reliable broadband internet connection to his rural property in the Waikato. This led Dr Pearson to undertake a research project through the University of Waikato and to develop No 8 Wireless, which would later become Lightwire. They take their mission of connecting people and businesses with the fastest internet and best network technologies very seriously. So seriously in fact that if there isn’t a solution, they will build one. Taking their local knowledge, can-do attitude, and ability to turn research and development into smart consumer-based solutions Lightwire aim to lead New Zealand in connectivity technology.
Lightwire know the Waikato. Based in Hamilton, New Zealand, their team turn research and development into world-class solutions for people like you. For over a decade Lightwire have been connecting small communities and more recently, providing complex network, data and internet solutions Waikato-wide.
Lightwire’s history is steeped in innovation and they continue to create practical solutions to rural, residential, prepay and business customers throughout the Waikato.
