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.
