Spark Jump helps families get home broadband so their 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-paid 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.

At your Spark Jump session, you will register your brand new modem*, create your top-up account, sign a Kawa of Care and get tips on what you can do with 30GB. Once completed you’ll walk out with a ready-to-go wireless modem that is preloaded with your free first 30GB/30-day data. At home, you just plug into power and use it with a tablet, laptop, computer or smartphone.
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.
*Free modem – the modem is loaned to you, for as long as you use the Spark Jump prepay service. If you sign up with another provider later on, you’ll need to give the modem back.
