Skinny is a mobile phone company. It's a separate division of Spark New Zealand Trading Limited which sells stuff with Skinny on it. And makes the odd T-Shirt.
We get to enjoy all the good stuff - the XT Network, reliability, scale, super speed and great national coverage - and build on top of it a different mobile society, with a different set of values and principles.
Here at Skinny we've stripped everything back, so you're only paying for stuff you actually want.
