About Freedom

We provide customers with residential apartment and short stay Internet services so we can make life happen!     We’re not your typical Internet Service Provider.

Freedom Internet pre-installs Gigabit fibre and Access Points so customers can connect to fibre speed Internet services the same day they move in.

No Calls to make, No waiting, No connection fees, just fast, instant Internet…easy!

Founded in 2010, we grew rapidly throughout New Zealand and Australia with over 500 buildings and 35,000 apartments serviced.  Now Freedom Internet New Zealand is focused on New Zealand customers and the New Zealand way of life.

Our job is to connect people. When people are connected, relationships are established, and communities are formed. This gives people a sense of belonging and it improves the quality of their lives by providing them with control and freedom.

We look forward to being your Internet Service Provider.
