Need a bit more?

Gold customers get $10 off our Endless Mobile Plan.

That’s just $69.99 per month for:

  • Unlimited calling to any NZ or Australia mobile or landline.
  • Unlimited NZ and Australia SMS.
  • Endless data (speeds reduced to 1.2 Mbps after max data speed allowance exceeded. No hotspots or tethering. Picture messaging and non-data video calling excluded.)

From time to time, we make changes to our plans to keep them up to date and provide even more value for our customers.

So, on 20 August 2021, we will be increasing the price of these plans and including more benefits, and the eligibility criteria will be lifted so they are no longer restricted to over 65 years.  The names of the plans is also changing – they will be available to all customers, making them perfect for first phone users as well as seniors with limited data needs and plenty of minutes. See table below for more information.
