If you'll be in the Urban areas of Auckland you'll find coverage is 
pretty solid on all the networks. I carry a Vodafone mobile and a Spark 
(so, same as Skinny) mobile routinely (personal, work) and though there 
is some variability, it's impossible to say which you'll find better 
without actually testing it in-situ.

If you plan to travel outside the main centres while you're in NZ, I'd 
stick with one of the larger networks (Spark or VF).
