Slow and pricy Internet access is a fact of life for many. Some areas are very lucky to have local enthusiasts delivering high speed access in all sorts of ways.
Ynet are one such company. Based on stunning Waiheke Island in New Zealand's Hauraki Gulf, Ynet have more than 16 transmitters delivering high speed access with high data caps at affordable prices to improbable places. Waiheke Island is one of the most beautiful places in the world too.
If you're not too far away and can see Waiheke Island, say along the Thames Coromandel coastline or Maraetai way then there's a very good chance you can get service from Ynet. Drop them an email.
Compare this with New Zealands largest telecommunications company, Telecom, who can only manage slow dial up in large areas of the Island. Hard to believe.
