There are 3 major mobile network operators in New Zealand:
Spark (was Telecom/XT) http://www.spark.co.nz/
Vodafone http://www.vodafone.co.nz/prepay/
2 degrees http://www.2degreesmobile.co.nz/prepay
Skinny virtual network operator https://www.skinny.co.nz/

All offer pre-paid SIM cards which can be easily obtained and require no paperwork or registration.
gsm 2g 900 1800 *can someone confirm these?* umts 3g 850, 900, 2100 *can someone confirm these?*

All operators now offer 4G in limited areas, which should cover most of Auckland CBD.
lte 4g 700 1800mhz *can someone confirm these?*

'italic 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.

Note Make a link (or describe it on this page) to Internet access during the conference.
