What is Spark Jump?
Spark Jump workshops are for families with children up to the age of 18 who do not have an internet connection in their homes. You will be issued with a free wifi modem and an initial 30GB of data. There is no fixed contract - just top up with $10 for 30GB when you can.
Please book into a workshop and bring with you your email address and password with you, if you have one, so that you can set up your prepay account.
