Jump Modems still available during Covid lockdown

With the country returning to a Level 4 lockdown today, all Jump partners will have to suspend the delivery of Jump modems to their communities. However the online ‘self-service’ option remains available. This involves completing an online application form that can be found here. You can also find this form on our Stepping Up website – go to ‘Jump’ in the top menu bar and select ‘Get Jump’; scroll to the bottom of the page and you will find a link to the self-service form.

We hope that most partners will be able to continue supporting their communities by accepting applications by telephone and submitting the application form on behalf of their customers. This worked really well during the Level 4 lockdowns in 2020 and as a result, thousands of households were able to connect to the internet at a time when their physical movements were severely constrained.

We acknowledge this is not as good an option as face-to-face delivery, where you can help your customers set up their Skinny accounts, but it can still be a lifeline for households without the internet.
