Choice. It’s finally here! For residents in BOF areas that have previously never had any choice on who provides their internet and phone, the wait is over. From 1 April 2013, these areas will be open to all telecommunications service providers. That said, many still cannot provide a fibre-based service to residents, as they don’t have the infrastructure or products available for the market. The good news is, Snap does and can provide internet and phone services to these areas. No more being held to ransom, we’re here to make your broadband experience as good as it gets, 24/7.

 

And it doesn’t get any better than this: Switch to Snap now, and you could be enjoying up to 6 months free internet and phone.

 

There are a few T&C’s to this offer, but to see if your address qualifies, head to https://myaccount.snap.net.nz/signup/home, check it out and see if you can love up to 6 months free internet.

Cheers, Ralph

hi all:

wondering anyone in a BOF subdivision has switched to Snap? 

I want to know a few things before I give Snap the tick :) so please help

1)  what the switch is like? did you choose the frizbox 7340 or 7390? I mean I've got
my own wireless router do I really need 7390?

2) whats the VOIP line quality like? compare to XNET's VOIP line.

3) Connection speed, I think this is the least worry I have as there is no infrastructure change at all I suppose.

And for snap, how long will this offer last?

thanks a lot

Connection speed might be different (faster?) because until now you will have relied on XNet's connectivity to the Internet, whereas if you change to Snap, you rely on Snap's connectivity to the Internet. The BOF infrastructure just moves your traffic to/from the ISP.

Cheers

Hi,
I can't see any details on the possible 6 months free?

I am in a BOF subdivision with Xnet. As I understand it I don't have a contract with Xnet/Worldxchange but I would have a contract if I move to snap.
Are there any costs in moving from Xnet to Snap for example any new hardware required? Any fees to retain my existing tel number?
I am currently on Xnet fusion 20 for $72.95/month. If I change to Snap am i correct that the monthly charge would be $75? (although that would give me 50G of data per month) any other benefits of changing to Snap?

Hi Nick

Hopefully if you put your address in when you're selecting a UFB plan, it should be coming up with the 6 month free deal. Feel free to DM me your address and we can double check - we have had a few issues with the address data from Chorus.

You have a choice of a 12 or 24 month contract with us. As a promotional offer, sign with us in April and you get 6 months free on a 24 month term, or 1 month free on a 12 month term. You'll also get a high quality FritzBox 7340 Wi-Fi router free as well - on either term. There are heaps of comments on GZ about the quality of these devices - we even sell them to a number of our competitors staff!!

There are no other set-up or install fees, and we can port your existing number from Xnet.

The basic plan does cost $75/m, we can also offer a higher speed plan (up to 100Mbps download, up to 50Mbps upload), for $110/m. The same deal with the free period applies to this plan as well.

In terms of other benefits - there are heaps!! Our NZ based , 24/7 call centre, our awesome range of add-ons (Unlimited Youtube $5/m, data packs from 100GB/m to 1000GB per month, all of which include unlimited downloads between 1am-7am) and awesome national backhaul & international connectivity meaning you'll get a fantastic internet experience with us.

Hope this helps - feel free to contact us at 0800 BROADBAND if you want to discuss the plans in more detail.

Cheers
