Basically there is no Sim cost, no activation cost.

 

Costs $30 and lasts for three weeks, giving visitors unlimited data (LTE up to 2GB, though!), domestic and international texting and 1,000 voice minutes for domestic calls.

Now wait for the naysayers here to say it's a crap network and never use it.  The plan looks good though..

Heh, to be fair I spent 2 weeks in the US recently on their "4G" network and I can tell you with certainty, that their 4G is worse than our 3G at least half the time. Their coverage is awful (I tried on 3 carriers) and even in strong coverage areas, throughput was nothing compared with what I get in NZ. 

 

Despite many peoples outdated and whiney views that NZ has poor internet, we are in most cases, very well catered for.
