There are 3 major mobile network operators in New Zealand:

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.

  • gsm 2g 900 1800 *can someone confirm these?*
  • umts/3g 850, 900, 2100 *can someone confirm these?*
  • lte-fd 4g 700 1800mhz *can someone confirm these?*

Note 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.

Note Spark (Telecom NZ/XT) does have 1GB data on WiFi per day across NZ starting at $29
