Kawa of Care updates

The most recent updates to the Kawa of Care have caused some confusion and this has been fixed this morning.   A new field was added to record the modem’s broadband number, referred to as the Mobile Station International Subscriber Directory Number (MSISDN).  This is a number used to identify a mobile phone number internationally and normally has New Zealand’s country code at the beginning (e.g. 64 204 123 6119).

We know this has caused some confusion because references on the modem itself and the Skinny website do not use the formal technical name. So we think it is simpler to just refer to this as the Broadband Number and use this number which is printed on the underside of the modem (the 11-digit number, e.g. 0204 123 6119).

Spark Foundation has made this amendment to the Kawa of Care this morning.
