2Degrees is the cheapest, if the hospital is in their zone. There isnt much difference between Telecom and Vodafone, both are insanely expensive.
You may want to check which gets better coverage at the hospital.

in Wanganui, 2 degrees piggybacks on the vodafone network. So they charge higher.

Really! Do you have a link or comparison!

"T-stick" is the telecom branded mobile connection device (usb stick type thing)
"vodem" is the vodafone one
not sure what the 2deg people call theirs.

You can use a 2degree's sim in a Telecom T-Stick without having to make any changes to software or anything like that.
How long will you be in hospital for!I 'think' you can buy Telecom T-Sticks for around $70 and they come with 1 or 2gb data preloaded.
