A boutique New Zealand-made jewellery store was the first business in Whangārei’s town basin to connect to our ultra-fast broadband (UFB) network.
Steve Haywood Master Jeweller handcrafts his own unique pieces as well as showcasing other New Zealand artists in the store.
Steve’s business operations are powered by the Northpower Fibre network – including his EFPOS terminal, cloud-based accounting software and email to communicate with suppliers and customers.
Since moving from the old copper lines to Northpower Fibre Steve has noticed a huge increase in internet reliability and speed.
"The most notable improvements are in speed and stability. The router is being reset nowhere near as often as it used to be, I moved to a local internet provider and made quite a saving moving to fibre.”
It is another great example of Northpower Fibre adding real value to our local business community, and providing them with a seamless and reliable connection to their customers.
“Everything is online, and I depend on a strong and fast internet connection.”
