At these kind of prices, it looks like I’ll be staying in major metropolitan areas with wifi for the next few months. I was dreaming of getting a satellite phone and a camper van (or a motorbike) and taking off into the wild!
If I want to be uber-available, I might consider a pre-paid satellite sim card ($500!) valid for 6 months. Paired with a satellite handset, I could potentially be “permanently connected”. Food for thought.

Does WIFI work in these situations, or perhaps borrow someone else's phone to make calls haha.

I'm not actually in NZ, I'll be using the system in Central / South America. The Vodafone NZ pricing came up first in my search for vodafone roaming charges! :)

a 500 sim should be good for a whole year. a shame NZ is just outside the thuraya coverage area. does BGAN even work there?
