HOW IT ALL STARTED...

Primo was originally established in 2006 to provide wireless broadband services to remote Taranaki communities. It now provides both mobile phone plans, fixed wireless rural broadband and fibre broadband services to thousands of customers nationwide.

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's customers are now enjoying the full benefits of connecting to Taranaki's only locally owned and operated ultrafast wireless network. In 2023, Primo launched its 100Mbps rural fixed wireless speeds under the governments Rural Capacity Upgrade initiative. The first in NZ to offer such speeds. 

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.

Great service compared to what we had with farmside before. We were paying over $300 a month before for 200gb and our bill has been more than halved, and we dont need to use slow satellite anymore.
Pros
Great speed, low cost compared to farmside.
Cons
None!

Local ISP with lots of backhaul so no slowdowns at peak time.
Pros
Great support team, very fast at all times of the day, low latency for gaming, large wireless coverage area.
Cons
Not the cheapest, but better value since unlimited plans were released. 24month contract required for free install.
