chevrolux:Lorenceo: You can still use any router to connect. I'm more concerned about the SIP situation though. Being forced to pay $400 for an ATA is insane.
So don't use Snap Plus then for voice.
This is when you use 2Talk instead - it's probably better than Snap's platform anyway.
Snap offer a fully managed voice service and obviously don't want the headache of customers using their own gear. Vodafone, Orcon, Slingshot all have the same practice.
I already do this. Snap VDSL and Xnet VFX.
I understand why they're doing it, but forcing people to use a $400 piece of equipment which many people have complaints about? It makes it a lot harder for me to recommend Snap as a UFB (phone + internet) provider to friends and family.
