Skinny Jump is a programme designed to help more New Zealanders gain access to affordable broadband at home. It is providing subsidised access to thousands of households who might not otherwise be able to afford internet at home. Jump is a flexible pre-paid service, offering 30GB of data for just $5, a quarter of the price of the cheapest commercial services available. Because it uses Skinny’s 4G wireless network there’s no fibre or landline connection and no installation cost. No credit references or credit checks needed.

To be eligible, you will need to fit into one of these categories :

  • Families with children in low socio-economic communities
  • People with disabilities
  • Migrants and refugees with English as a second language
  • Māori & Pasifika youth
  • Offenders and ex-offenders
  • Seniors
  • People living in social housing
