I've noticed when on 4G it shows "Spark NZT" and goes back to "Skinny" when it switches back to 3G on an iPhone 5S.

Skinny is a subsidiary company of Spark so it roams/uses most of Spark's cellular networks.

There is something weird with how spark have made that come up.

On my dual sim phones, it says spark in the pull down notification, but when choosing which sim to call out on, its still refered to as telecom. Also on my note in the network selection screen its still telecom, but gets spark on the pulldown.
