Choosing Your Internet Provider


Isn’t it peculiar how there’s a persisting assumption that older people don’t understand new technology and always need their grandchildren to show them how things work? Although that might be true in some cases, the majority of us understand and use new-world technology on a daily basis.


For instance, mobile phones are fantastic for staying up to date with the news, checking up on family and friends, and socialising with different types of people – from all over the planet.



Of course, there are other ways to do all that, but the convenience of having information in your pocket and just a click away is really empowering.

And as for providers, there are many options to consider today. Personally, I’ve been on Skinny for many years now, and I have never had a reason to complain. My previous provider made me feel unappreciated – dealing with them was very much like dealing with a faceless, non-understanding corporation. I don’t know about you, but to me, the face-to-face (or voice-to-voice) real person encounters get more and more important the older I get.

That’s just one of the things I like about Skinny: the great service from the New Zealand-based service team. Another is their relentless strive to always keep prices low without compromising the quality of their products. It’s all the quality stuff you need without the fluff. For instance, I’m enjoying Spark’s full 4G network – full speed and full coverage. No compromises!

You might think that Skinny is still a youth brand, that it’s for kids and students with very little cash at their disposal. Although that was the way it all started out, it is no longer true. (I was probably their most senior customer when I joined in 2012.) Skinny is really for everyone – everyone with a common-sense approach to price and value. That’s most of us, isn’t it?

Why don’t you check it out for yourself? Here’s the website address:
