We’re powered by Spark’s network, which means 5G Mobile will be coming to towns across New Zealand over the next little while! We’re starting off small, and testing the waters, before we take the network nationwide.
Faster network speeds mean you can download games, movies, and super large files faster than ever before. We’re talking seconds… not minutes! Speed will vary depending on things like your distance from a cell tower and your device.
Lower latency on the new 5G network allows quick response times between devices. In other words, less loading and a lot less waiting!
Capacity is a big one for 5G, which means we can connect more devices to the network at the same time, whilst maintaining speed and quality.
5G is the fifth generation of wireless technology, and we’re starting to roll it out across New Zealand. 5G has the potential to bring super-fast downloads, minimal latency, massive connectivity and outstanding reliability, which will open up huge possibilities for the way we live.
We’ve started our rollout of the 5G Mobile network in Palmerston North. Keep an eye out as we activate new places over the coming months, we’ll be updating our Coverage Map as we go.
We’re powered by Spark’s network! Which means we now offer in some very select areas, 5G! The 5G network coverage will expand as Spark rolls 5G out nationwide.
5G capable phones are now available online from Skinny. If you didn't buy your 5G phone from us or Spark you may need to check first to see if it will work on our 5G network.
5G access is available on all Skinny mobile plans (including standard rates) until July 2021 at no extra cost.
