Revision as of 10:32, 11 October 2014

There are 3 major mobile network operators in New Zealand (Spark (was Telecom/XT), Vodafone, 2degrees), as well as virtual network operators (Skinny). All offer pre-paid SIM cards which can be easily obtained and require no paperwork or registration.

All operators now offer 4G in limited areas, which should cover most of Auckland CBD.

Best for data-only would be 2degrees. NZ$99 for 12GB. For a mix of data/calls/texting all operators offer a similar NZ$19/mth pre-paid plan with Unlimited texting, 100 calling minutes, 500MB data.


Note make sure we mention the Vodafone Travellers SIM as for a lot of our attendees from outside of ANZ it will probably include minutes to call home.

Note Skinny also does a competitive package, with $4 for a sim that comes loaded with calling time (within ANZ), texts and mobile data.
