This whole discussion is going no where. Can someone from Snap make a comment? To me your silence is speaking volumes... But then I have worked for big companies and know how sometimes things fall thru the cracks...
And of course clients like to leave out details, why let the details get in the way of a good story/moan? Give us the other side or this is all pointless speculation.

No no no no no no no

Read the responses by some of the more senior and informed members of the community here...

Snap are almost certainly unable to comment on this topic as it would mean publicly disclosing private information about one of their customers (or ex customers). This would get them in hot water.

They are doing the RIGHT THING by not participating in this discussion, no matter how much they probably want to give their side of the story.

Moaning about them not giving private details about a customer issue is even more pointless than the speculation :-)

So to sum this all up it sounds like this happened.

Customer has problem, and complains to ISP
ISP suggests to get a Tech out and informs customer of potential no fault found costs
Customer chooses not to get tech and continues to complain to ISP
ISP says there is nothing more they can do without getting a tech
Customer complains more
ISP asks customer to leave as they have reached a dead end.
ISP submits broadband cancellation
Customer looks to damage ISPs reputation by posting a one sided story online.
Customer agrees to get a tech out
Customer signes up to Telecom
Tech solves the problem and service is restored
Open service order due to cancellation prevents customer from migrating to Telecom

I'm sure Telecom will send Snap a Christmas card to say thanks for fixing the issue for them ;)

you pretty much summed it up, however there was still no reason to terminate my connection.

only cos someone at snap got sick of me.

wasnt just that issue complained about,

throughput issues
lower sync/speed rates from the other 2 lines

my line rate was 1100 somthing, when slingshot and farmsides lines was 1700 something..

my download speed was 9.5 mbit oppsed to 12.5/13 mbit on the other 2 lines

the only way i could ever get above 9.5 mbit is mess with the snr margin within the router.

2 years ago i did get 14 mbit but slowly got slower over time.

AviZ thanks for allowing us to play "Guess what happened?".

It was really fun and I'm glad someone managed to solve the puzzle with the clues you gave us.

To be honest, even with your one-sided telling of the story, I don't actually understand what you're complaining about. I can completely understand Snap! asking you to move on, as you were not being reasonable with respects to fault finding.

I'd suggest that Snap! initiated your disconnection, as if they didn't, you'd probably stay with the status quo, which is not solving their problem.

It actually appears you were calling them about only getting 9.5mbit when 2 other lines coming into the same building were getting 12.5/13mbit... (From your own post above)

Without demeaning the problem, or the impact on you - I would suggest that most, if not all, other callers would have had more pressing issues.

Cheers - N
