Niue is a small island in the Pacific Ocean with a population of 1,000 inhabitants. Its sole provider of cellular communications is Telecom Niue. In 2019, Niue Telecom has finally launched an LTE network on Band 28 (700 MHz). Their new data plans for visitors, called Quick Bytes, are only intended to function on LTE, and according to their FAQ, they will only maintain their old 2G/EDGE network for another six months after the launch of LTE.
The local currency is the New Zealand dollar (NZ$).
Telecom Niue has NO roaming agreements with any providers outside Niue, not even New Zealand. If you want any mobile connection on the island you must buy a SIM from Telecom Niue.
