Hi, I'm a new Snap customer and I was wondering what people's experience(s) have been with the $5/3 nights of unmetered data offer. I haven't been able to find any recent postings on the subject. How, if at all, is it traffic-shaped or rate-limited? In my case, I wouldn't be using it for P2P.

Hey Zoey,

Thanks for signing up!

The unmetered nights addon is not traffic shaped or rate limited in any way. It's just raw broadband!

Cheers!

Even using it for P2P (Linux ISOs of course) I can usually get an average of 1.5 MB/s down overnight.

That's good to hear. My Linux ISOs come down over SSL-ed NNTP, which is currently topping out at around 14-15 megabits/sec (sustained 1.8 MB/sec transfer rate). Lowballing an average bandwidth of 12 megabits/sec that's still almost 100 GB over the 3-night period. Not bad, indeed.

Seems like allot of security for some open source software :P

Yeah, Microsoft has their spies everywhere. They'd love nothing more than to get their fingers on my stash of distros. It's not necessary to be paranoid, but it doesn't hurt. Why are you looking at me like that? :)

I'd be keeping an eye out for pluming or similar trades work trucks sitting outside your house now :)
