Spark Jump Test Modems

A number of partners have requested use of a Spark Jump modem as a Test Modem, i.e. one that they can use for training and for testing performance in marginal coverage areas.  Spark Foundation has approved this use, which is generally limited to one unit per delivery partner.  Someone needs to be accountable for the Test Modem and must complete an online Kawa of Care with contact name and address.  We suggest that the School field in the Kawa of Care be used to identify this as a Test Modem, as well as a note in the Comments field (column H) of the Spark Jump register.  The pre-loaded $10 will expire after 30 days, as for other Spark Jump modems, and partners have the choice of topping up to retain the modem as a test unit, or advising DIAA (sparkjump@diaa.nz) that the modem can be reset for re-issue.
