You're speed does not depend on your provider, unless you are in an area with special network infrastructure or on a throttled plan. All Snap plans should have identical speeds to Telecom plans because they use the same wholesale network.

The real difference is in customer service

In terms of local exchanges and DSLAMs, maybe. After that you have the handover, routing, domestic + international links which definitely will differ ISP to ISP.

Refer to all the comments on your other thread about how ADSL has a max upload of 1Mbps. Doesn't matter who you are with. Stick with TCL Cable for superior upload.

Snap as an ISP been with them for only a month but change over was flawless and service has been great so far. I get more data for cheaper on Snap than I did with Telecom and on Telecom I got a $40 discount! $75 for 70GB, next plan up is $85 for 155GB!! - Naked broadband of course.
