Spark Jump helps families and whānau get fast home broadband, so your children can continue learning out of school hours.
Spark Jump is a low-cost, pre-pay internet service for families with children under 18, with no current broadband connection.
Because it’s pre-pay there’s no risk of running up a debt. No contract or credit check.
Because it uses Spark’s 4G wireless network there’s no fibre or landline connection, and no installation cost or complications.
Spark Jump is subsidised by the Spark Foundation and available through the 20/20 Trust. For over 20 years the Trust has been a leader in community internet access with family-focused programmes including Computers in Homes and NetDay for schools. We’ve helped tens of thousands of NZ families get connected and computer confident.

1. Are we eligible?
Your family is eligible for Spark Jump if
1. your household includes one or more children (up to age 18)
2. your family home does not have a current broadband connection (internet on smart phones doesn’t count)
2. Is it available locally?
Spark Jump is available in your location if

2. there is suitable 4G coverage. You can check 4G coverage with Spark Wireless Broadband address checker
(If Spark Jump is not yet available in your location we suggest you
a) Register your interest with Spark so they can let you know when it becomes available, and
b) check your address on the NZ Broadband map to see if there are other, unfortunately probably more expensive, options.)
3. How do I get it?
To get Spark Jump register for a free, 2 hour modem set-up workshop. This link shows workshops listed on our online booking system. (Some local Spark Jump partners use their own booking systems, so if there are no local workshops listed, please contact them using contact details on the partner map.)
At the workshop you will learn more about Spark Jump, sign a straightforward Kawa of Care agreement and set up your free modem*. You’ll walk out with a ready-to-go wireless modem preloaded with your free first 30GB/30-day data. At home, you just plug in to power and use it with tablet, laptop, computer and smart phones!
