Spark boosts data and value-adds in its pay monthly mobile plans
Posted on 6-Sep-2016 05:00. | Tags Filed under: News.

From today, Spark is giving new and existing pay monthly customers up to 60% more mobile data, launching new data heavy plans and including Spotify Premium (music streaming) and Lightbox (TV online) in most of its plans, in response to the changing way that New Zealanders are using their mobiles.


Clive Ormerod, GM of Customer & Marketing for Spark explains, “New Zealanders are using their mobiles more and more for data intensive activities such as listening to music, watching video and engaging in social media. So we’re including much more data for our pay monthly customers at no extra cost to them. We want our customers to know that they can rely on Spark to help them stay connected, entertained and get things done on the go.



“To make sure that gamers, cat video watchers and those who continually check out the surf webcam can relax in the knowledge that their data usage is covered, we are also launching new data heavy plans, including a $99.99 open plan packed with 15GB data.”


Spark is also including Lightbox (worth $12.99 per 30 days) in all its pay monthly consumer mobile plans at no extra cost. With a stellar line up of TV content, including binge-worthy shows like Outlander, Suits and Mr. Robot, the addition of Lightbox to pay monthly mobile plans will be a major bonus for Spark’s new and existing customers.


Hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders use Spotify every day to listen to their favourite tracks. From today, customers on Spark’s $39.99 mobile plan will receive access to Spotify Premium (worth $12.99 per month) at no extra cost. This extends Spark’s existing offer of Spotify Premium to all new pay monthly plans. And as part of Spark’s ongoing partnership with Spotify, business customers now also receive access to Spotify Premium on selected business plans.


Ormerod explains, “Our usage data shows there’s a growing appetite for entertainment on mobile. Customers are accessing a range of media on their mobiles, including streaming Spotify Premium on the go, and watching TV with Lightbox while connected to WiFi. We want Spark to be the company that helps them open up this world of entertainment through their mobile.”


“We’re pushing to add more and more value,” says Ormerod, “from Lightbox and Spotify Premium, to Spark Thanks and free WiFi, right through to market-leading data and voice packages.


“We’re also really proud of the inclusion of Putti Web, some great refreshed sharer options and Spotify Premium for those on business plans. We don’t think anyone else offers more value to customers.”
