Skinny Jump limited offer

We’re supporting digital journeys with Skinny Jump.

What we’re doing

We’ve teamed up with Skinny Jump to offer two-years free wireless internet to digitally excluded tenants.

It’s a limited offer

  • We have a strictly limited number of Skinny Jump 210GB-a-month packages for qualifying tenants to use for free for two years.
  •  They’re for tenants who do not have the internet at home but have a device they can use and an email address.
  •  There will also need to be Skinny Jump cell phone tower capacity and coverage in your area.
  •  Qualifying tenants must attend a short workshop to sign up.
  •  The packages are available in strictly limited batches each month over 10 months.

We have a flyer you can read for full terms and conditions – click the pic to have a read:

How do I sign up?

We have a strictly limited number of connections and cannot provide more once they are allocated so it’s really important you contact ŌCHT if you think you might qualify. To register your interest:

  • Call 0800 624 456, Monday to Friday 8:30am – 5pm and follow the prompts, or
  • Email include your name, address and phone number and put “Skinny Jump” in the subject line.

What happens then?

  • Our digital coach will return your call or email within seven days.
  • We’ll discuss your connectivity and digital training needs.
  • We’ll check if Skinny Jump is available in your area.
  • If it is and you’re eligible, you will be booked into a sign-up workshop to get connected.
  • If Skinny Jump isn’t available in your area right now, we’ll put you on a waiting list.
  • We’ll link you up to free digital coaching if you need help using digital devices.

Already have broadband?

We’re prioritising tenants who don’t have internet at home. We’ll add you to a waiting list but it’s not likely we’ll have enough connections to move you to the sponsored plan.


The FAQs on Skinny Jump’s website might help.

Why we’re doing it

We know people who don’t have an internet connection at home miss out on easier access to many of the tools that support success in everyday life.

We also know the web is a great place for people to access the services and connections that can make it even easier to enjoy a sustainable tenancy.

Many ŌCHT tenants already have the internet at home, using it to do everything from accessing social agencies and banking, to looking for work and keeping in touch with family and friends.

Others don’t, often due to cost or not having the confidence to get and start using an internet connection.

ŌCHT is a landlord that’s committed to promoting sustainable tenancies, so we want to help digitally excluded tenants access what others in our community enjoy.

We hope to help as many people as we can to have the means and the confidence to better access an online world that might help in their daily lives.
