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.

Well, Skinny is, probably, the cheapest wireless provider in New Zealand. If your place is situated in an area with good 4G coverage, you can, definitely, give it a try.
Pros
Speed is better than ADSL.
Place independent.
No contact.
Good Huawei modem.
Excellent price.
Big amount of traffic (100GB).
Cons
It is wireless, therefore, not really stable.
Speed is good only in the areas with strong 4G signal.
Fibre is still better.
