How is Lightwire installed? 

A Lightwire technician installs a dish on the roof of your house that’s capable of receiving signals from a Lightwire tower site on a nearby hill. With a clear Line of Sight (LoS) between the tower and your dish, the tower beams signal over which data is carried. 

They invest in their own infrastructure, with over 200 towers across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty spanning from the Bombay Hills to Te Kuiti to Whakatane beaming fast internet down to rural properties.
