Sorry about that.

 

The team have been playing around with a few things and testing app behaviour; and accidentally released it into production.





I work for Skinny, but I don't post in my capacity as a Skinny representative. I check the forum in my spare time, and try to help when I can. To get help from the Skinny team head to https://support.skinny.co.nz/contact.php

So it will be a plan????, considering Sparks unlimited plan is the same price will Skinny allow tethering for free?

Yep, I had a look, and terms and conditions on web page.

$77 unlimited, slow down after 40 GB. Hot spotting and tethering allowed.

Data binge, gifting and roll over not available on plan.

Nice new plan :)

 

Quick question I note there is no slowdown speed stated on the website once the 40gb has been hit that I can see.

 

 

Is it based around prioritization based on the cell site load or a specific speed like voda/2degrees?

Slightly more so real world is about 1mbit.unlike vf :)

It's exactly the same network config as spark unlimited.
