Ask us about Skinny Jump - low-cost broadband for learning at home
Come in to either Napier or Taradale Library and ask us about getting a modem. We will go through the process with you and have you set up that day.
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 prepaid, which means you can top up as you go. There's also no contract or credit check required.
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 the form by clicking here.
You can contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Who can get Skinny Jump?
The following people are eligible for Skinny Jump:
• 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
With Skinny Jump, you pay $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 your household needs more than 150GB a month, you should consider another plan.
