I've been with 2degrees (in Auckland) for over 5 years (or something like that). I am on the 30/month plan, and buy my own phones so no extras to pay. Looking at https://www.glimp.co.nz/mobile/compare kogan comes up quite competitively. 

 

Would you recommend them in terms of coverage and reliability please?

 

 

 

Thanks.

Four friends are using Kogan mobile and have been happy using it. They use the vodafone network.

Moved my elderly cousin onto Kogan from Vodafone. A lot simpler for her paying for an entire year up front. She’s been with them since September last year and had no issues  

 

I think it worked out as around $13 per month for 1.5gb of data per month and unlimited calls and texts to NZ/AU. Very competitive. I’m waiting for to use up my banked skinny roll over data then I too will move. 

 

Also worth pointing out that they special their prices even further sometimes which is how we ended up paying $13 per month instead of the usual $14.90. Worth keeping an eye out if you’re in no hurry.

Thanks for your info. Would you recommend buying a 30 day plan instead and seeing if it goes down further. I mean 1.90 a month extra doesn't seem too bad to me.

When I first switched over I bought their hugely discounted substantive package for one month, which they commonly drop down to $5, as a trial to ensure I was happy with service, coverage etc. After that I bought 12 months of their second-tier package when that was also on sale, which ended up a bit more than my previous $16 Skinny package but with heaps more data. 

 

The only problem I’ve had is I can’t seem to sort out VoLTE, despite their help. Oh, found some dodgy reception zones (eg Main Street of Otaki) that weren’t there with Spark, but again my suggestion of a trial should reveal issues like this.

A 30 day plan is $17.90. As the other poster mentioned you’d be better off trialing the $5 for a single month deal.

They run off the Vodafone network so any patchiness isn’t a reflection of Kogan.

Thanks I've done just that. Now to wait for the sim.

Thank you for your help! I've bought the $5 dollar pack.
