Can i use the yellow and black lines in the phone jack to create another dedicated line and use broadband through it? or is there other cheap alternatives to having 2 connections instead of using mobile broadband?

Hi, yes it can be, but would be treated as a new connection, costs and all, but technically there is no problems proving a 2nd phone and BB connection assuming there are spare lines in the street etc.

How come you need a 2nd BB connection, are they to be run independent or as a backup or aggregated.

hey, its mainly temporary for four months or so, so id be paying line rental etc? yes they would need to be run independantly.
Ive just moved back to chch and the connection here on is a 3gb one that gets used it a couple of days so i just wanted to open up a separate line for me.

Why not just upgrade the plan on the existing line and offer to pay for the difference. It would be cheaper and then could be changed back at the end of four months. Problem solved?
