Two Degrees Mobile Limited (as we are officially known) is New Zealand's newest full service telecommunications provider. 

Back in the 90s a visionary group of Maori challenged the crown through the Treaty of Waitangi and won the rights to 3G spectrum. Despite financial and regulatory adversity a Maori Trust (Hautaki) was established with the challenge of launching New Zealand’s third mobile network. 

Tex Edwards founded 2degrees in February 2001 and provided initial capital.  Later that year investments were made by Strive Masiyiwa’s Econet Wireless group and shortly afterwards the pan-Maori trust Hautaki.

After successfully advocating for critical regulatory realignment the company was fully capitalised in 2007 and construction of its mobile network began.

We commercially launched in 2009, significantly lowering the cost of mobile for Kiwis.

Tex Edwards sold his interests in 2degrees in 2016 after some 15 years of support for the company including as a senior executive, director and founding shareholder.

Since our launch we’ve been busy. We have the backing of a unique partnership of international and Kiwi investors that have enabled us to build a brand new mobile network, helping us to cover 98.5% of the places Kiwis live and work. In March 2015 we also acquired NZ's fourth largest ISP, and now offer broadband services as well as mobile to Kiwis across the country.

We've put in place a great team, led by our CEO Stewart Sherriff and an internationally experienced management team which has a wealth of experience in building and delivering excellent mobile telecommunication networks and services.

We all really believe in what we are trying to accomplish for our customers and New Zealand. We’ve even been lucky enough to be recognised for it along the way, with a number of awards for our customer service over the years.

And this is just the beginning...

2 degrees broadband originaly Snap. Is poor value for money as they say "Service is there second name." When in fact if you try and contact them you wait on phone for over 35 minutes and they never offer a proper outcome.
Offer poor value as $80 Per month for 50 GB is poor value.
Lacks good support.
So beware as send message and they read message and over 36 hrs later still no response.
Combined Phone service crappy as when log a fault for phone not going they then want you to agree to cost of tech coming. I said no dont worry about landline I will use my mobile. Then hung up on them.
Guess what Phone service was restored a short time later. It was not wiring or phone as I had tested that with meter etc. They just trying to get money for nothing.

They never answer the phone anymore have waited 25min 30min and more every time I need to call. Their fritzbox modem has no range at all and will not reach all 5 rooms in our house

I think their modem Fritzbox 7560 is rubbish. Drops out all the time and the range is about 5 mts. Have rung them numerous times lots of checking and fiddling with cables etc but no change and that's with fibre!
crappy modem, ineffective customer service, drops out all the time
