Lightwire Satellite Services

On-Farm Extension

If you need to extend your internet to other areas of your property, opt for an On-Farm extension that connects your office, cowshed, or workshop to your existing plan without needing a second connection. This also includes a router, so you can connect multiple devices to the internet.

Coverage Extension

With a Lightwire coverage extension, you can provide each area of your property with its router. You can have these coverage extensions separate but billed on a single account.

Solar Extension

One requirement to get is a line of sight from a Lightwire tower. If your property can’t take advantage of this, you will need a solar extensio. When a solar extension site is installed, you can control the best line of sight location from a Lightwire tower.

AP Repeater

The AP repeater provides coverage to small communities with low population density. These towers are measured less than five metres tall and are designed to support a single 200W solar panel. If you and your neighbours need to connect directly to a Lightwire tower, reach out to their customer support for installation requests.

Full Site

The Lightwire Full Site is designed so solar and battery modules can be easily added to the site for sufficient power capacity. If you’re interested in getting a full site installation, reach out to a Lightwire agent to help out.
