Mobile Broadband Giveaway Starts Tomorrow

NZ’s Biggest-Ever Mobile Broadband Giveaway Starts Tomorrow

All Telecom Broadband customers (homes and businesses) are being offered a free prepaid Mobile Broadband T-Stick from December 10th, 2009.

All customers need to do to take advantage of the offer is:

1. bring their recent Telecom bill in-store, and 2. purchase 500MB of prepaid data for $29.95 (once customers start using their T-Stick, they have until the end of the calendar month before the data expires).

With a T-Stick plugged into a laptop you’re free to surf the web on the bus, at the beach, the airport or the bach, in 97% of the places where Kiwis live and work. That will keep NZers connected this Christmas Holidays

It’s easy to use, just plug the T-Stick into a laptop and start surfing, and with prepaid, customers only top up when they need to. Stocks are limited so will be first in, first served.


Limit one MF626 T-Stick per Account, not for resale. Six month expiry for all prepaid credit.

Mobile Broadband Fair Use Policy applies as it is not designed for prolonged intensive data use.

T-Sticks require Windows 2000 software or above.

See for coverage and full terms and to check computer compatibility.
