Compare the Cheapest Mobile Prepaid Deals
 

 



Updated 22/7/14

There are only 4 mobile companies in NZ.
The companies are creating add on packs which makes it more difficult to compare the deals as each has slightly different deals depending on how you use your mobile: calls, TXTs or Data.
 
 
Overall Best Value Mobile Prepay deal:
 
Skinny Mobile NZ offers the best overall package.
 
Since 2 Degrees launched Telecom & Vodafone seem to have stepped up its efforts on prices.
Skinny Mobile has also been set up to compete directly with 2 Degrees Mobile.
 
Vodafone offers good plans.

Telecom offers some of the best mobile coverage in NZ.
