Spark Foundation has partnered with 2020 Trust of offer a new pre-pay internet service for families with school-aged children. It has some significant benefits but does not replace contracted services offering around 100GB which the average family now uses each month, so Jump Start is not intended for people who want to download movies a lot etc but has been created to support internet access for families for their children's education.
- It costs $15 for a 30 GB data pack (which expires after 30 days, so must be topped up monthly)
- Top ups can be made using Skinny vouchers, or using a debit or credit card
- It uses the 4G and 4G 700 wireless network
- It is quick to set up.
If this sounds like a good fit for you or someone you know, please contact me and we will see if this would work at your home.
