Skinny Broadband launches with 4G service
Skinny Mobile has announced an extension of its business with the launch of Skinny Broadband. The new service is a low cost, easy-to-set-up internet connection that uses mobile data instead of copper of fibre lines.

“At Skinny we listen to our customers and we are a nimble business, which means we can always keep one-­‐step ahead of the competition and make the most of new technology.” comments Ross Parker, General Manager of Skinny Mobile.

“We know Kiwis are looking for lower cost, hassle free broadband options so we’re excited to launch Skinny Broadband, which offers our customers New Zealand’s best broadband prices, without the lengthy wait. You simply plug in your modem and you’re ready to go – you can set up in under 5 minutes.”

The new internet service is available in selected 4G areas nationally. The broadband connection operates on Spark’s 4G network and costs $55/month with a 60GB data allowance valid for a month. Users also have to pay the one off modem cost of $199. At launch the company is making a limited time offer where customers can get their first month ($55) free.

A straight forward set-up process, and easy to use modem ensures no technician is required to install the product and no external antennas are needed, saving customers time and money.

Customers can sign up online. The service is also offered without a landline, for those who don't need the extra costs.

The company says the average household uses approximately 45GB a month. 

An online address checker is available on the Skinny website so customers can check whether Skinny 4G Broadband will be available at their home.
