Farmside foot the data bill for Young Farmer finals

Rural Exchange 01/07/2018

With the FMG Young Farmer of the Year final coming up next weekend, some members of the rural community have expressed concern for how much the data to watch the live stream will cost them.

Streaming live on newshub.co.nz, rural broadband provider Farmside has decided to 'zero-rate' the data used by their customers watching the live stream.

This means that watching the final won't impact your data allocation at all.

Farmside General Manager Jason Sharp joins Rural Exchange to discuss the exciting technology they are using to broadcast this prestigous event.

The FMG Young Farmer of the Year grand final is supported by Mediaworks and Rural Exchange.
