The ZetiRover is a roaming Wi-Fi hotspot for vehicles and farm machinery. Powerful antennas and innovative multi-carrier software converts patchy coverage into fast long-range Wi-Fi for voice, video and data – on or off the farm.
Don’t rely on the coverage of a single carrier. The ZetiRover gives you access to multiple mobile and Wi-Fi networks. You’ll be connected, productive and safe in more places than ever.
Starting at $1,600*
All Zetifi products involve an upfront purchase of hardware and an ongoing monthly subscription. *Price excludes GST.
Folding Dual Antenna Pack
Permanently-mounted folding dual external antenna kit and rover bracket for roof rack or roll bar.
Bar mount with single LTE antenna
Permanently-mounted LTE external antenna and rover bracket for roof rack or roll bar.
On-farm Dual Antenna Pack
Magnetic quick-mount dual external antenna pack (Magnet mount not for use on public roads).
Optional external dual antenna pack for ZetiRover. LTE (4G) antenna improves range for backup connection and white Wi-Fi antenna provides connection to ZetiCell on-farm network.
Safe use guidelines: for on-farm use only, i.e. not be connected or used on public roads.
Portable External LTE Antenna
Magnetic single LTE external antenna for ZetiRover backup connection. (Magnet mount not for use on public roads).
Optional external LTE (4G) antenna for ZetiRover. Improves range and throughput from backup connection in areas where primary connection coverage is unavailable.

It’s hard to give a definitive answer as the ZetiRover always needs some feint LTE (4G) signal to work (unless it’s near a ZetiCell), but it will provide internet access in lots of places where your phone has no chance! Because coverage is different everywhere, the only way to know for sure how it will perform on your farm is through first-hand experience. For this reason, we offer a ‘satisfaction guarantee’ with all purchases so you can essentially trial it risk free. If it doesn’t give you the connectivity edge you were looking for you, can return it within the first 60 days for a full refund. We’re confident you’ll be impressed but in a country as big as Australia, there will always be locations that are even too remote for the ZetiRover!
If you’re near a ZetiCell it will be nearly as fast as the home internet connection. If it’s using LTE (4G) coverage it’s hard to predict as speeds vary depending on your location, network congestion, local weather conditions, hardware, other internet traffic, etc, but we’re confident you’ll find that the data speeds are much better than other network extension options. That being said, our focus has always been to design a product that provides more range and reliability rather than necessarily a a high-speed internet device. In fringe coverage areas, we consider speeds of 2Mbps to 10Mbps download to be pretty good as you’ll be able to do almost anything you need to, such as make phone calls, send emails, browse webpages, etc.
It scans its location and chooses which connection to use based on coverage availability and a pre-determined hierarchy of connections. In doing so, it overlays three potential networks, giving you the best possible chance of staying connected! The three connections are:
- Wi-Fi ‘backhaul’ connection to ZetiCell (with approx 3km if available)
- Primary LTE (4G) connection
- Backup LTE (4G) connection
No, the ZetiRover will perform well on its own but there are some situations where external antennas can be useful. The two main use cases for an external antennas are:
- External Wi-Fi antenna – provides increased range from a ZetiCell to a ZetiRover when these products are used together.
- External backup LTE antenna – provides slightly improved range and throughput for the backup LTE (4G) connection (the ZetiRover on its own has a slight in-built coverage advantage for the primary connection).
No, the ZetiRover is ready to go right out of the box. Just connect the power cord, mount it on top of your vehicle, connect the safety tether, scan your Wi-Fi card. and you’re ready to go!
If you’re not going to be moving your ZetiRover between vehicles, you might be interested in one of the fixed mounting plates that provide a permanent home for the ZetiRover. They make the unit a bit more secure when you’re parked and they also make it easy to permanently connect external antennas if these are required. These mounting bars require some basic tools to attach to your roof rack or tractor cab but it’s an easy job.
