What is Skinny Jump?

Skinny Jump is an initiative for those who don't have a broadband connection at home because cost is a barrier. It is flexible, pre-paid ($5 = 30GB) and you can top-up up five times every month. You can get up to a maximum of 150GB every month (and it will only cost you $25). Because it is wireless broadband technology it also means that no phone line is required.

Skinny Jump is specifically to support those most at risk of digital exclusion. If you don't already have broadband access and one or more of the following sounds like you, then you are probably eligible:

  • Families with children in low socio-economic communities 
  • Job seekers
  • Seniors
  • People with disabilities
  • Refugees and migrant communities
  • Those in social housing
  • Māori & Pasifika youth
  • Offenders and ex-offenders

For more information, and to check whether you have wireless broadband coverage in your area, check out the Skinny Jump Website
