    It's pretty appealing. 120MB a week on the "data add-on" is sweet, and the other stuff would be good, 10 minutes a week ought to mostly do me. Total for me would be $32 a month... No "Best Mate" or "Favorite" feature from what I can see though?

    It's Just Telecom trying to hide from their reputation.

    Entropy is not what
    it used to be.

    They're not strictly-speaking a Telecom company, they're more like Telstra, who don't have a phone network in NZ and so use another network (I believe Telstra have used both Telecom's and Vodafone's networks over the years).

    Skinny are obviously going for the cheap and nasty/amateurish website design though, with highlighted text, bolded bits, inconsistent font sizes and a generally tacky look... Probably relates to their target market.

    I suspect that site is aimed at the teenybopper audience..

    Signed up for the free sim just because you can top up with $5. Hate having to pay $20 or whatever with 2degrees.
