The easiest way to get low-cost home broadband
Kāpiti Libraries believes that everyone deserves equal opportunities to learn and thrive in our digital world. We have partnered up with the Skinny Jump service to provide super-affordable broadband to Kāpiti homes.
Skinny Jump is flexible prepaid broadband: Only $5 for 30GB of data, no contracts or credit checks, and the modem comes free of charge. Just top up as you go to a maximum of 150GB/$25 per month.
Is Skinny Jump for you?
Skinny Jump is for those who don't have a broadband connection at home because cost is a barrier.
We specifically support those most at risk of digital exclusion, as identified in the government's digital inclusion blueprint. If one or more of the following sounds like you, then you will be eligible for the Service:
- Families with children
- Job seekers
- People with disabilities
- Refugees and migrant communities
- Those residing in social housing
You will also need to have Skinny mobile network coverage at your home address.
To check your address, visit the Skinny Jump website: https://www.skinny.co.nz/jump/home/#availability
I’m eligible! How do I sign up?
It’s easy to get started. Send an email to us with your name, email, and phone number. A librarian will get back to you to get you registered and arrange a time for you to collect your modem.
