Shared Data for Business

If you’re on an eligible Business Plan, then you can share your NZ data with up to 5 people or devices on 2degrees for free! So if you’ve got tablets or other data devices there’s no need to buy separate Data Packs for these. Nice!

Sharing could save you money 

Sharing data from your Business Plan means you can make the most of your monthly Carryover Data allowance by sharing your data with up to five other devices or people with a 2degrees SIM. There’s no need to buy and manage extra data plans or data packs across different devices.

Share with each other 

You can share your NZ data with your team, or even your friends and family as long as their device has a 2degrees SIM. Unlike a pocket Wi-Fi or mobile hotspot those sharing your data don't need to be in close proximity. They can be in a completely different location in NZ.

So start making your data work harder for you and your business.

How do you start sharing data?

You can start sharing whenever you like in either the 2degrees App, or by text.

Start sharing in the 2degrees App:

  • Select Menu > Your Account > Sharing > Add Someone
  • Then punch in the 2degrees number you want to share with
  • Next click the ‘Data’ check box
  • Lastly push ”Add”
  • You’re done! We’ll send you a text once your sharing has been set up
  • You and your sharee may need to restart your mobile to start sharing

You’ll notice that you have the option in the app to share calls and texts as well. If you didn’t already know, you can keep your team connected by sharing your calls and texts with them for $25 per person, per month. So if you want to share data, calls and texts, simply select both boxes and we’ll set everything up together. Find out more about sharing your calls and texts here.

Start sharing by Text:
