Keeping In Touch in New Zealand


Internet Access

Perhaps because of its remote location, New Zealand was one of the first places to catch on to the international communications potential of the internet. As a result, most public libraries provide internet access, and there are many café’s where you can send email or surf the net.

Mobile Phones

Buying a prepaid mobile phone in New Zealand will help you to be contactable for employers. If you are serious about working and staying in one place for any period of time, try and budget for a phone.
