Leave a review about Skinny


Skinny’s whole reason for being is to strip everything back, so you only pay for stuff you actually want at super low prices. It’s based on a model called common sense. Skinny broadband only does award winning mobile and broadband, and it’s all prepay.

Skinny Mobile is a division of Spark New Zealand Trading Limited, and Skinny happily uses Spark's 4G network.

All broadband plans and providers in NZ offer extremely expensive products and to be honest quite arrogant personal approach (like elsewhere in NZ anyway). The prices compare to those from so called 3-th world countries. Anyway nothing like what we would like to be seen as - developed world.
The advice and approach from broadbandcompare.co.nz was surprisingly nice and polite - thank you.
I have not started using it yet. I went for 40GB, 40NZD a months plan and purchsed that over expensive modem for 99NZD. God help that it at least does the job satisfactory!
Over expensive, pure rip-off, like all the other offers. Obviously NZ needs open market, free and healthy (no "mafia") competitors.

Was fast with connection date and change over. Was mislead to what you could do. Their network is NATed. so you will get a internal IPv4 address from their network not a actual external address. So forwarding rules or a dmz on your router are redundant. i had my own vpn and plex server which i cannot access externally now. So if you host your own development web server or anything avoid them.
Fast and affordable
Internal NAT.
No External Address
3-4 internal hops till it gets out to external addresses.

Been a month we've been signed up with Skinny still haven't got a connection. Communication has been ridiculously poor. Just been informed that instead of an install date next week it's in July. 2 months from now. Skinny has done nothing to offer us compensation while we wait be it reimbursement of mobile data costs or waiving of fees. Disgusted with service and looking for other providers. Basically do not want to give them any money anymore.
Cheap plan
Disgusting serivce
