New Zealand internet provider Wireless Nation has upped its commitment to the rural sector in a new agreement with Farmstrong, an initiative to promote wellbeing for all farmers and growers across New Zealand.
Wireless Nation’s zero-rated data agreement means that its Satellite Broadband customers can access Farmstrong’s website without the data counting towards their data cap.
“We understand that satellite data is precious,” says Tom Linn, Technical Director, Wireless Nation.
“We also understand that rural communities’ access to internet connectivity can have a real impact on mental health and wellbeing.”
Also, Glenn Croasdale from Farmstrong welcomes the deal.
“We believe good reliable and affordable connectivity is critical for the health and wellbeing of rural communities - especially in regard to minimising the sense of isolation for our rural families,” he adds.
“Thanks to Wireless Nation, we can watch videos and spend as long as you want on the Farmstrong site, learning how to live well and stay well.”
Wireless Nation is a strategic partner of Rural Health Alliance Aotearoa New Zealand (RHAANZ).
The wholly-owned New Zealand company also has zero-rated data partnerships with ASB, PGG Wrightson, FMG and MYOB - it also zero-rates VoIP phone calls on its Satellite network.
