Unfortunately Skinny doesn't do data only plans.  Any suggestions for a data-only plan that's decent in terms of speeds and coverage, AND cost??

Have you looked at the Spark , 2Degrees and VodafoneNZ sites? I can see many options

 

Coverage is about the same overall for all carriers so just go for one that works in with budget 

 

Google is easy ' <carrier name> Data sharing

 

2degrees has great data sharing options with a main number on Prepaid and Postpaid

Why not just use Skinny anyway and just bundle the amount of data you want?  Just because calling / sms is included doesn't mean you have to use it.

www.warehousemobile.co.nz have pretty good pricing for data only.

 

$4 = 500mb

 

$8 = 1.25gb

 

$30 = 5gb

 

Runs on 2d network so you'd need to make sure that the coverage is OK for you.  You can manage it from the warehouse mobile app
