  1. These specific terms and conditions apply to you if you signed up to a Business Connect plan after 20 September 2017.  These terms and conditions apply in addition to our standard Business Terms and Conditions and the Business Account Terms and Conditions and will prevail in the event of any inconsistency between these terms and conditions and the Business Terms and Conditions or the Business Account Terms and Conditions.
  2. Capitalised terms not defined in these terms have the meaning given to them in the Business Terms and Conditions and the Business Account Terms and Conditions.
  3. The rates and conditions below apply when you use your Mobile Phone (or other device) in New Zealand (NZ) only and have subscribed to a Business Connect Plan.
  4. Prices exclude GST, unless stated otherwise.

Business Connect Plan

  1. You can sign up to one of the following Business Connect Plans*: 

NZ Carryover Data

8GB

20GB

30GB

60GB

90GB

150GB

*Subject to a 200GB cap.

  1. Under your Business Connect Plan you must have at least one Talk & Text Connection or Data Connection (each a Connection). A Team Member can be connected to a Connection belonging to your Business Connect Plan. You can have a maximum of 200 connections under your Business Connect Plan.
  2. Each Connection set up under the Business Connect Plan will share the pool of NZ Carryover Data (and otherwise any NZ Data automatically added) that is available under the Business Connect Plan. All data under your Business Connect Plan is used on a first in first served basis. No limit applies to an individual Connection’s use of data, and no Connection will be given priority over another Connection in respect of the use of available data.
  3. With your Business Connect Plan you will also receive automatic allocations of NZ Data when the total available data under your Business Connect Plan is almost out in accordance with clause 15 below.
  4. You will be charged each month for your Plan, each Connection and any automatic allocation of NZ Data to your Plan in accordance with your sign-up forms for your Business Connect Plan.

Data allocations

  1. NZ Carryover Data can only be used in NZ.
  2. You will receive the full allocation of NZ Carryover Data on activation of your Business Connect Plan, and you will be charged the full charge for your Plan on your first Billing Date. Further allocations of NZ Carryover Data will occur on each Billing Date for the duration of your Plan (subject to the 200GB cap described below).
  3. If the full allocation of NZ Carryover Data under the Business Connect Plan is not used during a Billing month that data will be carried over to the following Billing month provided you have not reached the 200GB cap applicable to your Plan. NZ Carryover Data may be accrued for up to 12 months.
  4. The NZ Carryover Data available under your Business Connect Plan cannot exceed 200GB on any Billing Date.
  5. Each time a Connection begins a data session, 10MB of the total available data under your Business Connect Plan will be reserved by that Connection. If the Connection uses less than 10MB during that data session, then the remaining data will returned to the total available data under the Business Connect Plan.
  6. When the data remaining under your Business Connect Plan (excluding data that has been reserved as described in clause 14 above) is 500MB or below, an additional:

(a)    6GB of NZ Data will automatically be added to your 8GB Business Connect Plan, and you will be charged $66 for each 6GB bundle added; or

(b)    10GB of NZ Data will automatically be added to your 20GB, 30GB, 60GB, 90GB or 150GB Business Connect Plan (as applicable), and you will be charged $110 for each 10GB bundle added. 

  1. Each additional NZ Data bundle applied under clause 15 above will expire 30 days from date of its allocation. NZ Data can only be used in NZ.
  2. Data allocated during the Billing month will be used first before any NZ Carryover Data that has carried over from a previous month.
