and give us $77 to be shared by 4 people making it $19.25 a person , on one single bill

This $77 unlimited plan will be great when going on holiday over summer, instead of trying to bank up lots of rollover data to use, just change to this unlimited plan for one month, then change back. Thanks Skinny!

 

Would be great if Skinny could next look at improving their "gifting" (which is very limited at only gifting 1GB of data, and costs).
Perhaps do similar to 2degrees, and allow to share 'rollover' data to other skinny SIM's, that would be perfect! :)

I can't decide $66 or $77 plan?

 

What are the advantages of $66 plan other than able to gift data and having the data roll over?

 

So if you want roll over get $66 and if you are going to use more than 30GB get $77? That means you have to predict ....

So I could get a cheap moblie pH just hotspot it use it all around my house? ... Reason being iam paying 139 a month for unlimited 3G connection which is around 1.2mpbs most of the time. Which I hear what they slow it down to after 40GB anyway....
Could I put the sim into a router? Since I got Huawei router already with the 3G I assume it won't work with that one?

broadband is hopeless in my area and I can't get skinny wireless cause out of there coverage area. Which is quite pathetic being only 10m from hamilton /gordonton.

I really want to know how much they slow it down after 40gb won't know till I try I suppose... Thinking of getting a 4g modem router to try it on... Or should get a cheap moblie use USB tether to router.

i think you're mistaken about something - skinny broadband and skinny mobile data is the same thing. 4g. something is not quite right with your statements ...

hio77: I'd highly recommend against both options for bitcoin trading @cokeman2 ;)


I got spark 4G for ethereum mining and my sons gaming, yes I pay quite alot for 2 Internet connections (I don't trade on any crypto just a holder/miner)

I thought they offer skinny unlimted broadband and wireless unlimited which I thought was only up to 240gb...

3G unlimited is for Netflix and miss constant overseas indian streaming TV.. This connection ccan handle Netflix HD and Indian TV SD at same time

I'm not sure, maybe it's allergic to speedtest but that's what it said. Did a few times.

Yes it's pretty slow however you tube HD was still working at 720p but as for Netflix it was a blocky 240p, and it's didn't get better after 5 minutes viewing. Websites were loading fine thou, this was tethering to my laptop
