What are the 'rules' around this? If it's random I assume you could actually win more than one (if your REALLY lucky)?

Will you be publishing the winners anywhere? Maybe if they are geekzone members you could post on here (Assuming they give you the OK of course!)

yep, that's possible I guess, but not especially likely.

Yes.  Once we have contacted each winner and gotten the 'ok' from them, we will publish on facebook. (so it may take a day or two to confirm each winner, depending on how often they check their email)

If we know someone's twitter or geekzone handle we'll also post it here.

First draw happening today.  Good luck everyone.

I just went and bought a new TV for the office to plug our PS4 into (so we can, I dunno, test the network or something like that...)  .... and it came with a free Xbox1, so now I'm not sure what to do with that....

Is it overkill to have a PS4 and an XBox1 in the office (for testing purposes naturally)?  I'm thinking no....

Cbfd: What time does the draw happen each day :)


I think 5pm, but we can't announce the winner until we've made contact and confirmed ID etc.  Don't worry though, you won't lose out just because you miss a call or something - we give you 3 days to accept before it gets re-drawn.

correct.  
For network testing purposes, you know, like making sure PSN and XBL work properly with Bigpipe, and viewing power point slides, spreadsheets or something.  Ahem.

Definitely the intent is not to have something for the team to play games, like Trials Fusion, UFC, BF4, Watchdogs, and FIFA on after work with a few beers.  No way.

We have our first winner....

No idea if he is a geekzone member or not. 
Sheridan, if you're out there - congrats.   Brand new PS4 with 3 months PSPlus subscription coming your way.

Stay tuned for tomorrow's draw!

What are my chances of winning? IE: How many customers do Big Pipe currently have, and how many customers are you signing up on average per month?
