I've been with 2degrees Broadband since back when it was Snap. Back then I picked Snap because it appealed to the more technical users and as such, over the years with them I ended up getting static IPv4, IPv6 and they also offered me a /29 public IP subnet. As someone with a bit of a home lab, I happily took up that offer and it has been pretty handy for having a VPN on port 443 (for public networks that have strict port blocking) while also having some other services on 443. It is a bit overkill, but it has carried over with all the changes that have happened with the ISP since.


Quic looks tempting to switch to, but having a /29 would be kind of nice to keep, if they support it?

I'm pretty sure it is something coming soon. They did speak of it in the past. They've also just purchased more IP space too :)

Hey @Obraik!


Not officially just yet, but once you have a connection with us, fire me a DM with the name on your account and connection address, and I can provision you a /29 subnet. :-)


As @michaelmurfy has eluded to, this is coming soon in an official sense (aka once it's automated from a provisioning perspective etc), but happy to provision bespoke/manually until then.

That's good news, I'll definitely look into that! 2gbps for the price I'm paying for 900mbps seems like a no brainer 😉
