Gravity is proud to be partnering with the latest technological broadband advancements rolling out across Asia Pacific, but most importantly, in remote and rural New Zealand.
In December, Gravity's technology providers plan to launch a high-tech, state-of-the-art satellite (Kacific1) from the SpaceX launch pad.
The new satellite uses the latest technology built by Boeing (the world's largest aerospace company). It will be the ﬁrst of its kind in our region, oﬀering next-generation internet connectivity and speeds. Coverage will expand across 25 nations throughout southeast Asia, Paciﬁc Islands and New Zealand.
The aim is to provide high speed, aﬀordable and accessible internet to rural and remote users. Currently, a lack in technology and capacity are preventing New Zealand communities from beneﬁting from a fast internet connection. This is all going to change.
Gravity will be ushering in the new satellite technology, which will be a game changer for farmers, rural communities and remote dwellers in New Zealand. The new broadband technology will be made available on select Gravity plans in early 2020.
When users connect to the internet via the new satellite technology, they will enjoy fast speeds that have not been available before to remote and rural households. Satellite broadband customers can expect download speeds to increase by up to 4x and even more on certain plans. Standard connection speeds are expected to exceed 20 Mbps.
* Based on typical 4G connection speeds, but not exclusively faster in all cases.
** Based on 2017 internet NZ survey data.
Gravity customers will be able to enjoy
The new satellite technology will be offered through Gravity Internet, available from as early as February 2020. Users on the new connection will need specialised satellite dishes to enable the new technology.
Existing customers with older dishes will receive a free upgraded dish and modem.
Gravity will be releasing new connections on a first in first served basis.
