Effects on other services

Your Rural Broadband service requires mains power to operate. If power is not available (e.g. during a local power outage) the broadband, and any services which run over it (such as the Home Phone Plus service), may stop working unless you have battery backup in your home. Services that require a traditional fixed phone line to work, such as a monitored medical or home alarms, fax machines and pay tv boxes are incompatible with voice calling over broadband. We recommend checking with your provider of any of these services to ensure that they will still work with Home Phone Plus, which is a voice over internet service.

Other charges

We offer a range of Add-On Services, including:

Home Phone Services:

  • Home Phone Plus service - $15/month. This is delivered over your Rural Broadband connection and includes voicemail, caller ID, call waiting, and unlimited* calls to NZ & Australian landlines).
