Skinny Jump

Skinny Jump is for those who don't have a broadband connection at home because cost is a barrier.

Skinny believes every New Zealander deserves to have the opportunities to learn and thrive in the modern digital world.

Skinny Jump is flexible prepaid broadband: Only $5 for 35GB of data, no contracts or credit checks, and the modem comes free of charge. Just top up as you go.

The flexible prepaid top-up system means you can get a 35GB plan for only $5; you can then renew the plan up to six times every month. You can get up to a maximum of 210GB every month (and it will only cost you $30).

Plus Skinny gives every Jump customer a bonus 15GB free every month as well.

If you identify with one or more of the following groups and do not already have broadband in your home, then you are eligible for a Skinny Jump connection:

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

Timaru District Libraries is proud to be working with Skinny Jump to help close the access gap between those who can afford home broadband and those who can't.
