McGee: Got a second pair ?

Could get nDSL on a second pair into the address and leave the phone etc untouched.


I just emailed snap support and asked about that option.
While talking the owners of the phone line about switching .. which is looking promising.


a new connection fee will apply



For what exactly ?



There's no connection fees on naked and I was told phone transitions are free ?


chorus will want a connection fee for hooking up the 2nd peer to a asam.

why not go with snaps phone and broadband for $75/m only $15/m more than naked dsl. and if you live in the south island 03 numbers are free to any town.

but then again when snap get their A into G they should have vfx like xnet naked dsl with voip phone.

There is no way I would consider moving to TelstraClear (no offence, but that special rate wasn't competitive a month ago, yet alone now)

Even without being able to move to an @home plan to get the new data packs, snap is more than competitive with the $5 unlimited for 3 nights deal which gets me through periods of large downloads.

However, since my last post it looks like I may be able to convince the owners of the phone line to let me switch the phone line to snap - best of both worlds.
I get more data, they save $40-50 a month off their phone bill.

Just need to ask a few questions to confirm a few things.

Have the business plans been redone or are they still to be done? I can't believe how much more the business plans cost than the residential.

networkn: Have the business plans been redone or are they still to be done? I can't believe how much more the business plans cost than the residential.


this was posted yesterday on Snap Twitter

For all those asking, the @ work plans will be finalized late next week.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

snap have managed to answer all my questions regarding moving over to them which should please the phone line holders. Hopefully soon I can get the increase in cap .. and the cheapness of the phone/ADSL combo.

Still waiting for the new @ Work plans. They promised the end of the week. I guess there's still another 3 hours of the working week left, but nothing from Snap yet.

Just called up and it took less than 5 minutes to rejoin snap on the @home plans (even with a error at work causing the call I was on to disconnected half way confirming the additions to the plan (145GB and Wiring Maintenance) 

So on the 6th (my plan roll over date) I should be connected to thew new plans.

Then I decide if I want unlimited YouTube and/or more data)

Looks like they've doubled the @Work plans. We were on 100GB VDSL, now 200GB for the same price
