NZCrusader: 

Still, every network only buys X amount of bandwidth, per X number of customers. 
Unless they have 1:1 and alot of hardware to share the load over multiple links I dont see how they could be certain for network pings not to rise / speeds not to slow as they claim. 


For an ISP which supplies bandwidth to many schools and universities they should have bucket loads of free capacity during the evenings and weekends. They would have a double peak so to speak, one around mid day and then again in the evenings so they should be more than fine to handle users going all out on the weekend.

In fact I wouldn't be too surprised if you saw them doing this on a near monthly basis, doesn't cost them anything more and gets people into the habit of really using their connection which will hopefully result in more data usage over the rest of the month too.

So far the speeds seem to have been fairly reasonable, nice to see that it hasn't gone the way of TelstraClear :)
I'll see if I can get more than 250GB downloaded by Monday morning...

telsta customers shouldnt feel a thing as snap is a smaller provider and also snap is a end user of telstra.

if snap had another company under it then their users will feel it.

think of a chain reaction if you will.

Thanks again SNAP for the free weekend.

Howeve can I suggest maybe letting customers KNOW that this is happening via email. I don't hang around Geekzone 24/7 and do not do Twitter or Facebook.

Only found out as I logged onto check how much data I had and noticed the free weekend meter.
