Ask Us About Skinny Jump - subsidised broadband for learning at home
Spark Foundation and Digital Inclusion Alliance Aotearoa are making subsidised broadband available to people in Napier through Napier Libraries, enabling more people to keep up with the digital skills necessary for today.
Skinny Jump enables more people to go online and get on the right side of the digital divide.
At $5 per month for 30GB, it's for people who don't currently have internet at home. Best of all, it comes with a free modem and it's prepay which means you can top up as you go. There's also no contract or credit check required.
We will be running a limited number of Skinny Jump sign ups at the libraries, to book a session click here.
You can also have a modem delivered to your house for you to set up. The information is supplied with the modem, just go the Skinny website and fill in form click here.
You can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The following people are now eligible for Skinny Jump. These groups were identified in the Digital Inclusion Blueprint as being most at risk of being digitally excluded:
• families with children in low socio-economic communities
• people living in social housing
• people with disabilities
• migrants and refugees with English as a second language
• Māori and Pasifika youth
• offenders and ex-offenders
N.B. the wording of this list comes directly from the report
From 25th March 2020 it will be $5 for 30GB. It is, however, capped at five top-ups per month. This is so more Kiwis can have access to Skinny Jump and to control loading on network cell towers. If households need more than 150GB a month, they should consider another plan. If they want to stick with Skinny, they can call the Skinny Care Team on 0800 475 4669 to find the best plan to suit them.
