If you can’t get fibre at your home, but have a 4G signal, wireless broadband is the next best thing. And at just $65 for an uncapped plan, Skinny’s new wireless broadband plan is great value for money.
The new plan is the largest of Skinny’s three wireless broadband plans, which all use the Spark 4G network:
|Plan||Monthly data||Download/Upload||Cost (per month)*|
|60GB Wireless 4G Broadband||60GB||4G/4G||$39|
|120GB Wireless 4G Broadband||120GB||4G/4G||$49|
|Uncapped Wireless 4G Broadband||Uncapped||4G/4G||$65|
Skinny’s Unlimited Wireless Deal
While the new $65 is the cheapest wireless deal in the market, and comes with a 30-day money-back network guarantee, there are some considerations to bear in mind:
- Skinny wireless 4G broadband is only available in certain areas within the Spark 4G coverage area
- To connect on the plan, you’re required to use a Skinny 4G modem, which costs a one-off $99
- Connection speeds should be higher than ADSL broadband but generally slower than fibre
- A Fair Use clause means you cannot use the service in a way that is overly excessive or unreasonable
