While Snap are an amazing ISP with good deals and great customer service these prices made my eyes explode.

Just also going to point out, the website has no Mobile help section, and does not (easily) list the frequencies used by them. They are an MVNO so it's either XT or VF, most likely XT but that still needs to be put up there (and phone compatibility).

CruciasNZ: While Snap are an amazing ISP with good deals and great customer service these prices made my eyes explode.

Looks like XT, had to read the agreement / T&Cs to find out: https://myaccount.snap.net.nz/signup/home/mobileagreement

7. I understand it is my responsibility to ensure that my mobile phone(s) will be compatible on the snap! mobile network. (snap! mobile operates in the 850 and 2100Mhz frequency band on WCDMA/UMTS), and that a snap! SIM card will be supplied to replace my existing SIM card.


Edit: Really they shouldn't even mention 2100Mhz, unless in a sentence such as: "operates in the 850 WCDMA frequency band, hand sets that also support the 2100MHz may have better reception in some areas, but 850mhz must be supported."

Cheers for that, but they still need to make it easier!

I've received confirmation they are indeed running on Telecom XT.

It runs on Telecoms WCDMA network. XT is Telecoms retail brand. It's a subtle but important difference.

Damn MVNO's must get horrible margins.
