The key difference relates to tethering and hotspotting.
Tethering or Mobile Hotspots on Unlimited Data plans only enabled when a Hotspot Extra is purchased.
You get unlimited calls and texts to standard NZ and Australian numbers (you need to be texting or calling another person). Unlimited texts cannot be used for re-supply, call centre usage, telemarketing, bulk messaging, application-to-person communication, machine to machine communication (including by using your SIM card in any other device), Cellular Trunking Units (CTUs), or any other activity that Spark considers to be non-standard personal usage ("Prohibited Usage").
We’ve also added a big chunk of extra data to most plans. Machine to machine services, or any other similar activity that Spark considers to be non-standard personal usage is prohibited ("Prohibited Usage").
If you want the ability to use some data on other devices, you can purchase a Hotspot Extra to use either 1GB or 10GB of your unlimited data allocation on other devices you own or another person’s device for up to 30 days from purchase.
Once you have used your allocation of hotspot or tethering data, you will no longer be able to tether or hotspot on other devices; however, you’ll still be able to use your Unlimited plan data on your mobile. The Hotspot Extra can be purchased at any point in the month.
If such Prohibited Usage continues despite notification from us, we may remove your subscription with unlimited texts immediately with notice. You will still be able to use your data like you did before but you will experience some degradation (such as lower video resolution) when watching video, streaming or loading images.
Sign up to New Zealand’s Unbeatable, Unlimited Mobile Plan for Unlimited Data Talk Text Spotify Premium Lightbox Standard Plan, for only .99 per month. If we consider that you are engaging in Prohibited Usage we may contact you and ask you to stop such usage. Max speeds reduced after 22GB of data usage per billing cycle.
With the Spark Unlimited mobile plan, you will receive Unlimited Talk (NZ & AUS), Unlimited Text (NZ & AUS) and unlimited Data (NZ only) for your mobile.
