NZ has three mobile phone providers

Telecom
Vodafone
2degrees

Telecom, I know charges $20/GB. So if you have deep pockets, go for it!

Not AFAIK, but then truly unlimited landline BB deals are relatively few...

Not at present. Telecom's current $19 deal gives you 60 minutes talk time, unlimited texts, free calls to other telecom numbers and 500mb of data. It's about the best pay as you go deal here at the moment and is better than it used to be but still a long way from unlimited Internet.
At home we have a 120Gb allowance which all my colleagues think is bonkers but we chew through it every month no problem. Coming from truly unlimited Internet in Qatar has been a shock!

I guess you could say Telecom's is unlimited. My mum was using her smartphone as a wireless hotspot and spent $500 for about 3 weeks!!! She doesn't have broadband at her house on Waiheke. I said it wouldn't have been cheaper putting in broadband for a year (well nearly). I'm having words with her. So technically I guess Telecom will let you spend as much as you want.
