NZ Carryover Data

  1. NZ Carryover Data is allocated on your Billing Date and can only be used in New Zealand.
  2. If you do not use your full allocation of NZ Carryover Data during your Billing month, your unused NZ Carryover Data for that Billing month will be carried over to the following Billing month. NZ Carryover Data (if not used) can be accrued for up to 12 months and will expire on the day prior to the first anniversary of the Billing Date on which this NZ Carryover Data was first allocated to you. During any Billing month, your allocated Plan data will always be used before any NZ Carryover Data you have accrued.
  3. If you consume all the NZ Carryover Data available under your Plan in any Billing month you must purchase a Data Add On to continue using data services until a new allocation of NZ Carryover Data is made under your Plan on your next Billing Date.  You will be charged for any Data Add On purchased by you in accordance with the terms of that Add On.
  4. If you downgrade from your Carryover Plan to another Pay Monthly plan (including another Carryover Plan) you will only be able to carryover a maximum of 20GB of Carryover Data to your new plan.
  5. Data usage per session is rounded up to the nearest 46.08KB increment. Minimum data usage per session of up to 46.08KB applies.

Endless NZ Data

  1. You will be charged a 0 cent per MB rate for all data consumed in New Zealand on each Billing Date for the term of your Plan provided you pay the applicable Plan Charge.
  2. If you exceed your allocated data allowance during a billing month your maximum data speeds reduce to 1.2 Mbps until your next applicable billing month and hotspotting speeds may be reduced further during periods of network congestion. Your experience will be impacted at reduced speeds. E.g. if you are on the $75 Endless Plan, once you exceed 40GB in a month your maximum speeds are reduced to 1.2Mbps until your plan renews on your Billing Date. This will also apply on a per person basis to any Pay Monthly Group Plan members on your account.
  3. At reduced max speeds you can mostly use your data on your phone the same as before including listen to music, browse online, Zoom call, stream, download stuff, watch movies but the image quality will be lower (particularly hotspotting to a big screen), it’s not suitable for HD video, there may be buffering/interruptions, some high speed gaming and applications may not work and loading large files may take longer. Click here for more details.
  4. Endless NZ Data may be used for hotspotting and standard personal use only. You must not use Endless NZ Data for machine-to-machine communications; or in a manner that interferes with our ability to provide quality service to other users; or commercial type activities; or any other similar activity that we consider to be non-standard personal usage (Restricted Activities). If, acting reasonably, we think, you’re using our services for Restricted Activities we may ask you to stop using our services in that manner. If you ignore us or misuse or interfere with our Network the Service may be slowed, reprioritised, suspended, terminated, or restricted and your Plan could be suspended or terminated immediately with notice.
  5. Our Fair Use Policy applies to Endless NZ Data. Please ensure that you have read and understood this policy (which also forms part of the Pay Monthly Terms and Conditions and is published by us at 2degreesmobile.co.nz/fairusepolicy). We may take action if we consider your use of Endless NZ Data breaches the Fair Use Policy.
  6. The actual data speed you achieve when using any data is dependent on a number of factors, including (but not limited to) how far you and your phone are from the nearest cell tower site and congestion on a particular cell tower at any given time.
