Too slow, last time I talked to chorus change over was going to be compete by then. The goal post always moves further away.

Some people will never be happy...

Xnet can still provide service in BOF areas.

Sign up with Xnet for 1 month and then break contract to switch to Snap? Otherwise, live for 1 month with no phone or Internet? I do apologise, but I don't find either of those two options very appealing..

Why would you need to dump Xnet?

UFB will obviously see these subvisions move to the UFB wholesale pricing rather than the BoF pricing which differs significantly due to the different product offersings.

get a 2degrees stick, plug it into your router and a 12gb data pack or two depending on how much you use?

There are no  contracts on the new WxC plan, you'll only pay the $199 installation fee and then no disconnection fee, don't know if the new provider would charge you a churn fee afterwards though.
