Our Story

From humble beginnings.

Our story began in 2019, when a 14-year-old named Alex was approached by residents of a rural beach settlement who were struggling with unreliable and unusable internet connections. As someone with a natural curiosity for technology, Alex knew he could help and thus WombatNET was born.

Thanks to the support of a Palmerston North business accelerator scheme, Alex’s idea was able to flourish and grow WombatNET into the thriving business it is today. From the beginning, we have been committed to building resilient, self-sufficient networks that can withstand the unpredictable weather of the Wellington region.

At WombatNET, we value diversity, the environment, and the power of community. Our wraparound service offerings are designed to cater to any home, business, premises, farm, or individual within the Wellington region, regardless of their demographic or location.

We are proud to have been awarded Best Emerging Business at the Wellington Gold Awards in 2021 for our work within Wellington communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our alternative systems provided vital connectivity that other ISPs simply couldn’t sustain.

Our team is made up of individuals who are passionate about connectivity and communication. We believe that connectivity is the backbone of the modern world, and we’re committed to ensuring that no one in New Zealand struggles to stay connected.

We’ve faced many challenges along the way, particularly related to Alex’s age, but our determination and grit have seen us through. We have rewarding experiences every day, knowing that our work has helped families stay connected to loved ones and the world.

We take customer feedback very seriously, and we’re proud to say that all online feedback has been positive. We’re constantly looking for ways to improve, and we’re committed to delivering the best possible service to our customers.
