Best prepaid wifi for the Glacier area

Hello

We always travel with a prepaid wifi thingy (last NZ trip, we used Vodafone) and Im wondering if it will work in the glacier area as Im hoping to do some work each night.

Or if there is someone better than Vodafone for coverage - happy to buy a new prepaid wifi if it keeps us online

Many thanks.

Most cell phones work at the glacier area - but they don't when travelling Haast Pass and Arthur's Pass - so I presume any prepaid thingy will also work at the glaciers.

Where are you staying? Many accommodation places offer complimentary wifi.

Thanks. We're staying at the Distinction at Fox and they do include limited daily internet but I'm hoping to do work that requires a fair bit of data and time. Fingers cross for me.

A lot oyf accommodation places belong to the one WiFi network so once you sign up you can use your membership at a number of locations. It is a bit more reliable than vodaphone if you are out of the main areas.
