If internet goes down, your modem automatically connects to the 4G mobile network. If 4G coverage is not available in your area, you will connect to 3G. Check out this coverage map to see whether you’ve got 3G/4G coverage.
4G Backup will protect systems from disruption and safeguard your business with reliable internet connectivity.
The consequences of internet being down are immense. Just a few minutes of downtime can ripple across your business and cause loss of productivity and hits to revenue.
Having a backup connection provides continued ability to:
- Process transactions through Point-Of-Sale (POS) systems
- Digitally communicate with customers and suppliers
- Access cloud-based applications, security and file storage
1GB of Backup data per month. This will roll over to the next month for up to 12 months, so you can accumulate up to 12GB of backup data.
If you use your 1GB data allowance and all carryover data, additional backup data can be purchased for $10.43 per 1GB (excl GST). Just add the 'NZ Data Pack' via mobile.orcon.net.nz.
Note: We don’t casually charge for backup data – so you don’t need to worry about unexpected charges.
Sure is! You should only notice a very brief connection interruption when your modem automatically switches over to the backup internet.
