Skinny Jump is a programme designed to help more New Zealanders access affordable broadband at home. Skinny Jump is available for homes that currently don't have a broadband connection because cost is a barrier, in particular;
  • Families with children in low socio-economic communities
  • People living in social housing
  • Those who are unemployed
  • People with disabilities
  • Migrant and refugees with English as a second language
  • Maaori and Pasifika youth
  • Offenders and ex-offenders
  • Seniors
If you're in one of these groups then here are some important things to note:
  1. First please check to see if Skinny will work at your address. Click the orange "See if Skinny will work at my place" button below
  2. If it does, then complete the "I Want a Skinny Modem" form below
  3. If you have now, or have had in the past, an account with Skinny you will need to create a new email address, as Skinny does not allow a second account on one email. But don't worry we can help you with this
  4. You MUST have data on your phone (or access to internet) so that you are able to verify the account set up which is sent to your email
  5. Once we've received your form and set your modem up, we will contact you to let you know it's ready to collect from us.
