Skinny Jump is a subsidised wireless internet service supported by the Spark Foundation. It provides flexible prepaid broadband available through Skinny Jump partners.
Only $5 for 30GB of data, with no contracts or credit checks, and the modem comes free of charge. Just top up as you go.
Skinny Jump is targeted at households that do not have a broadband connection at home because cost is a barrier or for digitally disadvantaged groups.
Modems are supplied at no cost with the first 30GB data prepaid by the Spark Foundation.
Our libraries at Cambridge and Te Awamutu are local partners.
Skinny Jump does need to be available at your address. To search for your address: click here.
Skinny Jump can also be offered as a one hour course session. Sessions can be made available one on one.
