Skinny Jump - low-cost prepaid broadband service for eligible Kiwi homes

15 Apr 2020

Skinny Jump is for those who don't have a broadband connection at home because cost is a barrier.

They specifically support those most at risk of digital exclusion, as identified in the government's digital inclusion blueprint.

People who may be eligible:

  • Families with children
  • Job seekers
  • Seniors
  • People with disabilities
  • Refugees and migrant communities
  • Those in social housing

There may be other circumstances that make people eligible. The best way to find out about eligibility for Skinny Jump is to talk to one of our local partners. Due to the recent COVID-19 situation, many local Jump partners have closed temporarily. Some partners can help with sign up over the phone - please go here for more information.
