Fantastic! These must be the best value ADSL plans in the country, at least amongst ISPs with top-tier performance. 260GB naked DSL for $100. Way to go Snap :)

Are the VDSL2 plans on their own bandwidth allocation thing? Or are they lumped in with everyone else? (Despite the markup on VDSL2)

I think some people think that companies don't actually require funds or profit to operate these days :P

Drat, Naked Broadband doesn't work they way I thought it did..
Thought I could still have a phone connection with another provider and still have Naked Broadband, but the lovely person at snap told me that I couldn't have the phone line if I wanted Naked .. or else switch the phone over to them.

Since I don't control the phone line, I can't do any switching and am stuck with my old 35GB plan.

Oh well.

If you are talking to me, then no I don't think I can ...
Dunedin is not a Cable zone area.

I just emailed snap support and asked about that option.
While talking the owners of the phone line about switching .. which is looking promising.

There's no connection fees on naked and I was told phone transitions are free ?
