We’re powered by the Spark Network – NZ’s largest 4G network.
The Spark 4G network runs on 1800 MHz and 700 MHz spectrum. Well, the 1800 MHz works great in urban areas, but the 700 MHz spectrum gives greater mobile coverage and capacity from fewer cell sites. So, we can really step up our 4G rollout, particularly in less-populated and rural areas.
4G, 3G–WHAT THE G? Here's the low down...
4G – superfast. Currently live in more than 200 locations across New Zealand.
4G on 700 MHz – Equally superfast. 4G over 700MHz is suited to rural areas thanks to its ability and reach.
3G – World class 3G speeds. And 97% of New Zealanders can get it.
HD Voice - Spark has rolled out HD Voice capability across the country, so you can make and receive great sounding calls no matter where you are. Both you and the person you are calling must have Spark or Skinny-supplied compatible phones, otherwise you may not experience HD voice quality.
The map indicates where we estimate our network coverage is available. Your experience may vary from the coverage shown depending on mobile capability, how it is used, and the local environment.
