How it all started...

Primo 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, Primo 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 Primo's network from the ground up. As a result, Primo' 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 2007 Primo has been growing rapidly which is down to its superior high speed broadband solutions, the high level of customer service Primo provide and the drive of the people behind the business.

best internet we have had, we live rural and suffered on spark as it was slow and sometimes didnt work at all and now have been on primo for 2 years with only a couple of issues.
really fast like in town, hardly any issues.
more expensive than others but worth it i think, they need an unlimited plan and afterhours help.

They provide good service to us, never really have any problems and when there is its fixed quick and we are updated on facebook.
good support, fast speed and no peak time issues.
would be better if it was cheaper and needs better coverage.

I've been with primo for years now and have never had my service interrupted through a failure of theirs or their equipment. They were the first and ONLY company in my area to provide an alternative to dial up or the overpriced and useless satellite options. I know there are cheaper faster options out there, but not where I live, and they could be ripping us the same way farmside does its customers but they don't. I have no problem with their contract as I have no one else offering me ANY access to the internet, let alone reliable, fast reasonably priced internet Those of us out in the hills were getting right royally ... by the companies that were and still are operating in rural areas. These guys had to build their own infrastructure and maintain it from the start . They are the only company I have ever dealt with that dropped its price and bettered its service of their own accord. ...read more
Reliable connectivity.
Great people to deal with.
Local company.
Variety of plans available.
Speeds may not be fast enough for some.
No one to contact on weekends.
Can be difficult getting them out to more rural areas.
