Coverage

Unlike a cellular network, all Araneo links are engineered from the tower to the end user. This means a coverage check is done by verifying "line of sight" from an end user location to one of Araneo's towers. Red lines on our maps show our current Ethernet backbone. Towers without red lines connecting them to the network can be upgraded to Ethernet if demand exists, but this can take some time.

In the example below, showing the North shore of Lake Taupo, most of the city and surrounding countryside is well covered by towers with Ethernet at Tuhingamata, Kaimanawa, and Whakapapataringa. Rural areas to the far North-East are covered by Maroanui, so while a service could be established, there would be a much longer lead time for it.
