Skinny Jump


Thanks to our Partnership with Digital Inclusion Alliance Aotearoa, Rotorua Library is able to offer Skinny Jump.

​​Skinny specifically supports those most at risk of digital exclusion, as identified in the government's digital inclusion blueprint.  If one or more of the following sounds like you, then you would probably be eligible:

​Families with children

Job seekers


People with disabilities

Refugees and migrant communities

Those in social housing

There may be other circumstances that make you eligible. The best way to find out whether you're eligible for Skinny Jump is to talk to our staff.

With Skinny Jump you can use a up to 150GB per month. Activity like online gaming and streaming videos can burn through data and Skinny Jump wasn’t created for lots of these kinds of activity. If you think you think you'll need more than 150GB a month, Skinny Jump may not be right for you.

What do I get?

You will be issued with a free wifi modem and an initial 30GB of data. There is no fixed contract. Top-ups are $5 for 30GB for 30 days on the skinny pre-pay service. ​

Will Skinny Jump work at my place?

Suitable 4GB coverage is required as confirmed by the Skinny Wireless Broadband address checker:​
