In August 2018 I published a blog post about the way to handle things when a family moves houses and takes their JUMP modem with them (which of course they can). This process has now been simplified – there is no need to advise local delivery partners or DIAA. Families should be advised to just call Skinny on 0800 475 4669 and the helpful Skinny team will provide any advice needed on 4G coverage at the new location, as well as update the family’s records. That’s all it takes!
Of course partners can suggest to families that they check coverage at their new location themselves – this could save a bit of time and effort. But the important thing is to ensure Skinny has the updated address. This is especially important for families in temporary accommodation when they sign-up for JUMP – they must let Skinny know their new address when they move into more permanent accommodation.
Families who move to a new suburb or town without notifying Skinny are likely to get their service cut off as they will show up in a location breach report. When this happens Skinny will attempt to contact the family to get their new address, but if for any reason they can’t make contact, the modem will be blocked and internet service denied.
