Nothing to do with 2degrees. Running on the One NZ network.

Edit: snap.

And I'm moving this out of 2degrees.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Looking at the info, to get 5G, it must be on the $80 plan?

 

 

 

also, is roaming available?

I have no idea what they offer. Might pay to contact Rocket Mobile if it's not something obvious on their website.

For Rocket you need https://rocketmobile.co.nz/plans/

 

International Roaming isn't available on the Rocket plans at the moment (saw somewhere it was coming soon), but also no international calling other than NZ/AU both key differences that I can see to the old My Republic plans.

 

OP: Last FAQ on that page states 5G is on all plans.

@snj What are you on about?? Roaming is clearly listed as available with pricing so unless you provide me information on the website I am calling BS

Click on "View Plan Details" on any of those plans on the Rocket Mobile site, "International Roaming: Temporarily unavailable"

From a RocketMobile rep on Cheapies

"Unfortunately roaming isn't currently available but will be back as an $8/day add on soon, keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates on that."

Yeah, don't conflate the old My Republic plans for Rocket Mobile plans. Note that they have two sets of Terms and Conditions listed at https://rocketmobile.co.nz/support/legal-policies/ the "Pay Monthly" ones correspond to the old My Republic sites with regard to Roaming, the "Upfront" terms correspond to the information on the website for the Rocket brand.

 

Looks like it will be "buy before you roam" when they do implement it, but obviously they haven't got it ready in time for launching.
