RalphFromSnap: Hi BogBeast

As soon as they offer it, we're in! We actually discussed this with them today and will be looking to arrange a test circuit into Snap HQ next week, so all going well we might be able to offer some Extreme goodness early(ish) in the New Year.

Cheers
Ralph


Please let us know as soon as it is available in Christchurch as I'm definitely in.

Interestingly, at the moment my speedtest.net tests are showing 102 down and 53 up.  I didn't think that was possible with the existing Layer 3 service as the IP protocol overhead required to do this generally consumes about 5-10% of the available bandwidth - have you changed something?





Chorus announced changes to this as part of their "Right Performing" plan which also includes introducing contention into the GPON network which is required for plans faster than 100Mbps.

Enable must be doing the same thing here in Christchurch.

I called Snap like 2 days ago, I was told that 200mb plan it isn't available on enable yet, only on Chorus UFB.

I think you guys might have mistaken what Ralph said as a public trial. Read back and he says they are trying to get a trial connection into snap HQ, not a trial for the public / select few.

Thanks Snap!

I ordered this straight away, had a few issues though, couldn't get speed over 100 to start with, after logging a fault with Snap and much back and forth it turns out it was me being an idiot. I was testing the speed with a Macbook Air ethernet to USB adapter which is 100mbps max. As soon as I tested on a Macbook pro straight ethernet..........BOOM!

This is a known issue. I also have this issue. Strangely it's only on the 200 / 50

You can surf the web all day long with no issues but as soon as you start a download the connection drops. When we tested my connection dropped 3 times in a 1 GB download.

The fritzbox log states "timeout during PPP negotiation"

As I say Snap are aware. I'll post back here if / when it's resolved.

Cheers

Which model of Fritz!Box are you using PoHq? Maslink/SamF, are you seeing this problem?

Thanks. I'm able to reproduce this problem, and I'm going to start pushing this now.
Not sure which device is at fault just yet - I think it's a bit early to make the call.

I have checked everything, there is nothing else for it, you are going to have to give everyone on 200 / 50 a free Fritzbox 7490 :-)
