Hello

I am heading to NZ for a couple of weeks at end of month from Sydney. I need to work while there – ideally with liberal use of laptop, iPad and iPhone.

Will be in the MacKenzie country in a place with no internet and no landline (although there is mobile coverage).

Does anyone know of options for renting a pocket Wifi in NZ? A colleague just did this on a trip to Japan and it was very satisfactory.

Failing that, any suggestions on other options?

thanks

Thanks - Yes that is an option. 

However, the rental pocket wifi in Japan was apparently great for my colleague because of the unlimited download (and connection for up to 5 devices). V cost effective.  Perhaps it is not an option in NZ.
