Just got these awesome speeds downloading from snaps steam server. I'm impressed!

I'm on there 250GB VDSL2 plan, and loving it!

Only problem is the sketchy VOIP service, but apparently it's the wiring in the house -.- (its not)

But I rather give up a stable landline for fast internet ;D (even though it shouldn't have to be that way)

I moved from telecom to SNAP! due to more cheaper data plans.

Nice!

House wiring can be a problem for ATA's tho so I would try plugging a phone directly into the ATA and see if that fix's things. I assume the Telecom line into the house has been cut?




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated

just remember Snap have only had VOIP as a service for a month or so, so they are still getting rid of all the kinks . It took them a week to get mine right and its been perfect ever since.

Yes I know that haha. They said to get an electrician in to check the wiring, as there is frequent disconnections on their end. But I havn't noticed any disconnections on my end.

I have heard of all sorts of problems with people using SIP lines and VOIP with Snap. Most users have switched to a different provider which has solved the problem.

i would think there are not that many people using it yet, you had to get VDSL to get VOIP and its only been going a month, mine has been error free once they fixed a few teething problems and the Fritzbox is great at keeping track of everything.
