EKIWI

EKIWI was an Auckland based phonecard provider which entered the market about 2000 and  offered a variety of phonecard solutions to various advertisers as well as providing a selection of cards for normal retail purchase from a variety of outlets mostly in the Auckland region. The company managed by Ed Smallwood ceased working under this name in early 2002.

The first ekiwi cards were powered by Amvia and later cards by Brocker on Line Telecommunications.  It is likely that several other values and possibly other designs also exist and any help with any of these details will be much appreciated.

Note: The above cards are powered by Brocker on Line Communications and appear to be a subsequent series from the original "Things to do" series. The lettering of the ekiwi logo on the $5 card is larger than the previous series. Exactly where the $2 business card fits is uncertain.

The above listing done in January 2002 is the first attempt to catalogue these issues. It is likely there will be mistakes in both the order of the card issues and in omissions.

Subsequently cards have  appeared   with an "easycall" branding which are obviously from the same stable as the above cards as they also use some of the same images and graphics.
