Upper Hutt Libraries is teaming up with Digital Inclusion Alliance Aotearoa to offer Skinny Jump.
Skinny Jump (previously Spark Jump) is designed for households at risk of digital exclusion and who don’t have a broadband connection, participants receive a free Wi-Fi modem and 30 GB of data for $5 on the pre-pay service with no fixed contract.
Your household is now eligible for Skinny Jump if you identify with one or more of the following groups:
· Families with children in low socio-economic communities
· People with disabilities
· Migrants and refugees with English as a second language
· Māori and Pasifika youth
· Offenders and ex-offenders
· Seniors
· People living in social housing
“We are really excited to be able to help Upper Hutt households stay connected with friends and family outside their bubble through Skinny Jump during the COVID-19 crisis,” says Marion Read, Upper Hutt Libraries Manager.
