First phase of metro Wi-Fi rollout

Wednesday, 26 September, 2007


RoamAD has announced that New Zealand network operator Kordia is launching its first two metro Wi-Fi networks in Auckland and Taupo, New Zealand.

The service, Kordia Metro Wi-Fi, is available in the Auckland suburbs of Parnell, Ponsonby, Remuera and Karangahape Road and will be available in the Taupo CBD later this month.

The aggressive rollout strategy will see the service shortly expanding to nearly 20 cities throughout New Zealand.

The metro Wi-Fi network is unbundled and can operate multiple SSIDs. This allows Kordia to wholesale access to a number of ISPs to on-sell to their users.

The network is supported by RoamAD's optimised wireless networking platform and can support mobile broadband data as well as mobile VoIP/VoWiFi.

The network can be accessed with any Wi-Fi enabled device such as a laptop, PDA or cell phone.

The company expects strong take-up over the next three years, with a vision for targeted Metro Wi-Fi coverage in every New Zealand city by 2010.
