Great reasons to go Wireless

Speed and reliability

Wireless Broadband uses our super-fast 4G network. We’re so sure you’ll love Wireless Broadband’s speed and reliability to do your online tasks like checking email, social media, news, watching videos and more.

Quick and easy set-up

It takes just a few minutes to get set-up. Just plug in your modem, turn it on and your broadband will be connected in a few minutes. There are no installation costs, no copper cables, and no waiting for a technician to organise your connection. It’s ready to go when you are.

Extra data when you need it

If you are on a 120GB capped plan and you find you use all of your data, you’ll pay just $10 for each additional 10GB of data - up to 50GB. To keep track of your data usage you can set-up usage alerts in MySpark. Unplan automatically moves you between three price tiers based on what you use each month, giving you the freedom to use more data with no overage charges.

Plug & play, no waiting for contractors

  • You may only use your Spark Wireless Broadband modem to receive the service at the installed location. If you use it at another location, we may suspend, disconnect, or restrict your Spark Wireless Broadband service without notice. We need to manage our 4G network to give all customers a reliable and consistent service; if customers move their modem to a new area, this limits our ability to do this. If you move house, let us know beforehand so we can confirm what broadband options are available and get you correctly set up for your move.
  •  

  • The Spark Wireless Broadband modem requires mains power so service (including access to emergency services) will not be available in the event of a power failure. We recommend having a charged mobile phone available for use during power outages. If you have a monitored alarm that uses your landline, you’ll need to update it to a wireless option. Most medical alarm providers offer wireless monitoring solutions – it is important that you arrange this with your provider.
  •  

  • Spark’s Wireless Broadband service does not use a copper connection or phone jack points in your home. You can use portable cordless phones (which are available from Spark) if you need multiple phones in your home.
  •  

  • If you use all your plan data, extra data will automatically be charged to your account at $10 for 10GB. Extra data packs can be purchased but limits apply.
  •  

  • If you are on The Unplan you will not pay overages, the max you will pay is $85 per month.

What about my landline service?

A Wireless Landline service is included with most of our Wireless Broadband plans (unless you choose a Naked one without a landline) and calling using it will work the same as your current landline today.

 

What if I have my toll calls with a different provider?

If you choose a Wireless Broadband/Landline plan you will have to use Spark for your direct dial toll calling (Non-code access). That means you won't be able to use another company to make your toll calls and any toll calls you do make will be charged to your Spark account.

 

Are there any other services that I can't use with a Wireless Landline?

The following services don’t work with Wireless Landline:

  • Monitored alarm: (including medical and security alarms) that uses your landline
  • You cannot use a SKY remote to download SKY "pay per view" movies or games, or SKY betting. You can still order SKY "pay per view" movies or games by calling SKY TV
  • Home 0800
  • Hotline
  • Unlimited data
  • Talk it up neighbouring area
  • Eftpos machines that require a landline
  • Faxes
  • Centrex
  • Dual Number
  • ISDN
  • PABXs
  • Stepping

 

Can I use my existing home phone with Wireless Landline?

Your existing home phone calling will work as normal when plugged into the back of the modem. If it’s a cordless (DECT) phone, you’ll still need to have the base station connected to power. If you have multiple phones in other rooms that are connected via the jackpoint in the wall, these will not work.

If you want to use multiple phones, we recommend using a cordless (DECT) phone with multiple handsets.

 

How can I keep track of my usage, and what if I want more data?

It's super easy to keep track of your usage, you can see how much data you have left by logging into your account in MySpark. Once you reach your data cap, extra data is charged at $10 for the first 10GB, then data usage is blocked. Extra data can be purchased at 10GB for $10 and this can be purchased as a one-off or recurring monthly. You can add extra data using the Spark app or through MySpark.

 

Does Wireless Broadband work in the event of a power outage?

No, Wireless Broadband will not work in the event of a power outage. If you have a Wireless Landline as part of your bundle, this also won’t work, including the ability to make 111 calls. We recommend having a fully charged mobile phone on hand at all times, or using an uninterrupted power source (UPS) to keep your broadband and landline service working in the event of a power outage.

 

How do I connect all my devices to the new Wireless Broadband modem?

Your new modem will have a different WiFi network name so you’ll need to set up your devices to connect to this. On your computer or other devices (i.e. mobile or tablet), just search for the new network. It will show up as SPARK-B315-XXXX (the exact name is shown on the sticker on the bottom of your modem). Choose that one, then enter the WiFi Key (case sensitive) to join the network. You’ll find all this information on the bottom of your modem.

Sign-up with Spark for 12-months and a top-spec modem is coming your way. Free.
