There are 3 major mobile network operators in New Zealand:<br/>

*Spark (was Telecom/XT) http://www.spark.co.nz/<br/>

*Vodafone http://www.vodafone.co.nz/<br/>
+
*2 degrees http://www.2degreesmobile.co.nz/<br/>

All offer pre-paid SIM cards which can be easily obtained and require no paperwork or registration (you can pick one up in the airport just after you get through customs).

All operators now offer 4G in limited areas, which should cover most of Auckland CBD.  The 4G frequencies are the ones used in most Asia-Pacific countries, and '''different''' to the AWS bands used in North America.

We had a personal crypto bof organised at short notice during LCA2014.

The idea is to talk about crypto and security from the perspective of ourselves as skilled end users. No spooks or spook supporters!

Last year we ran the BOF with a semi-formal speaking list to try to ensure that everyone who wants to contribute gets to speak. Adding topics of discussion above will help with facilitation if we do this again.

* [[User:Augur_.|<font color="#703931">'''ᏜᏠᎶᏠᏑ'''</font>]][[User_talk:Augur_.|<font size="4" color="#723a32">&#x2710;</font>]][[Special:Contributions/Augur_.|<font size="4" color="#723a32">&#x2315;</font>]]
* Make sure the correct network is selected
+
* Justin Clacherty
* Call 200
+
* You will be prompted to add a PIN to manage your account.
+
* First do a top-up (1).  Minimum amount is 20 NZD, can be done by credit card over phone or purchase a topup with cash at a store.
+
* You probably don't want to have them save your credit card details, otherwise the combo pack will automatically renew when you leave.
+
* You get a text message confirming it.
+
* Add a combo pack or data pack
+
* You get a text message confirming it.
+
 
+
Note: Their IVR doesn't update with your current balance while you're still on the line -- the balance is from when you started the call. So you top up your account, and then you get told that you have "0 Dollars"...
+
 
+
Other note: They also have a captive portal that allows you to sign up.  However, this website is not mobile-friendly.  Additionally, on Android, if you rotate the phone you have to start again, and the zoom function is disabled/stuck.  Do it over the phone instead.
+
 
+
== Skinny ==
+
 
+
* Virtual Mobile Network Operator that runs from the Spark network.
+
* GSM NOT AVAILABLE
+
* UMTS (3G) 850 / 2100
+
 
+
'''Note''' Skinny also does a competitive package, with $4 for a sim that comes loaded with calling time (within ANZ), texts and mobile data.
+
 
+
== Spark (Telecom / XT) ==
+
 
+
* Store in the international terminal, in the arrivals area.  Marked as "Telecom" in Airport maps.
+
* GSM NOT AVAILABLE
+
* UMTS (3G) 850 / 2100
+
* LTE (4G) Band 3 (1800MHz) in cities and major rural areas, Band 7 (2600MHz) in Central Auckland and Band 28 (700MHz) in major rural areas (not cities)
+
 
+
Prepaid:
+
 
+
'''Note''' Spark Travellers SIM for $49 is similar to the Vodafone offering.
+
 
+
'''Note''' Spark (Telecom NZ/XT) does have 1GB data on WiFi per day across NZ starting at $29
+
 
+
'''Note''' Spark / Skinny share the same broadcast frequencies and have '''NO''' 2G Network
+
 
+
 
+
== Vodafone ==
+
 
+
* Store in the international terminal, in the arrivals area.
+
* GSM (2G) 900 / 1800
+
* UMTS (3G) 900 / 2100
+
* LTE (4G) Band 3 (1800MHz) and 28 (700MHz) in cities only.
+
 
+
Prepaid:
+
 
+
'''Note''' Vodafone Travellers SIM for $49 with 2GB Data, and for a lot of our attendees from outside of ANZ it will probably include minutes to call home. Check your countries Vodafone website
+
 
+
 
+
== Roaming with an Australian Telco ==
+
 
+
* Optus post-paid mobiles allegedly have a $10/day travel pack option which can be activated online, giving unlimited talk and SMS plus 50MB data/day.  This is markedly (exponentially?) cheaper than the standard roaming rate.  See http://www.optus.com.au/shop/mobilephones/international-roaming/postpaid#add-roaming for details, or http://www.optus.com.au/shop/mobilephones/international-roaming/data-roaming#add-roaming if you only want data and don't care about talk/SMS.
+
* Telstra has something similar - see https://www.telstra.com.au/mobile-phones/international-roaming#intravelpass.
+
* So does Vodafone: http://www.vodafone.com.au/personal/international-roaming
+
* Don't accidentally use roaming data without getting some sort of travel pack active first.  You will almost certainly regret it.
+
* Picking up a New Zealand SIM will probably still work out cheaper than roaming travel packs, especially if you only really care about data.

We had a personal crypto bof organised at short notice during LCA2014.

The idea is to talk about crypto and security from the perspective of ourselves as skilled end users. No spooks or spook supporters!

Possible topics of discussion:

  • 2014 discoveries of major OpenSSL flaws
  • impact of new data retention legislation & new surveillance powers
  • status of projects / products for secure home routers & mesh networking

Last year we ran the BOF with a semi-formal speaking list to try to ensure that everyone who wants to contribute gets to speak. Adding topics of discussion above will help with facilitation if we do this again.
