Coming over from Oz for the holidays and one task I have is to buy/setup a laptop for a family member living in Wellington.
The user is older / non tech savy / should be an extremely light data user (apart from getting smacked with a windows update from time to time). Has no smartphone.
Can new users use the 'zone data' prepaid mobile data plans?
The 6 month $99 12GB plan looked good for this situation. However the plans do look a bit.... grandfathered. I had another family member using this for a few years before I moved away and it worked well.
Otherwise, are there any other plans about in the NZ market that have more than a 1 month expiry? I haven't spied any but I am not fully up with the play anymore there. My concern is a windows update comes along and uses all the data in a particular month. Although windows will probably recognise it ain't a wifi connection and hold back on big updates, if I could avoid the risk with a plan that can deal with those bumps that would be ideal.
