Unifone Satellite Broadband

Unifone Broadband is among today’s leading rural internet service providers in Otago and Southland. This is Travis Baired’s brainchild when he was still a student at Otago University. He found a group of like-minded folks that supported him in his way to becoming the most used network in nearby flats.

Now, they have multiple broadband plans to choose from. With their dedication to improving their coverage, more and more customers opt for Unifone plans as they’re more consistent compared to their competitors in the region. With about 60 wireless sites, it’s no surprise that they have a fast-growing customer base with over 1,800 remote broadband customers.
