Ever since I joined Snap I have had issues being able to connect to the game launching client origin, is there any known fix around getting around this? I believe I have opened all my ports correctly to let it through. It was working fine before I switched to snap. This is the last option i have to troubleshoot the problem after various uninstalls and reinstalls and reformats. Please let me know if you have any other issues that are similar :)

No, nothing wrong here with Origin at all... Currently have it open and just had another go on SimCity V... on Snap VDSL in Auckland.

In AKL - I play BF4 and ever since i swapped to SNAP, i can't open Origin by itself and have to "join" server on BTLOG page, when games starts it starts origin from there, that works....

also I've noticed when downloading game updates/patches in Origin it's been very slow during the last 2 updates, dunno why as on FIBRE and all my mates on ADSL/VDSL through others providers downloads 10x quicker than me, could be because SNAP is based in CHCH and me in AKL?

not looking forward to the next massive update in a couple days time - :(

No issue here on SNAP UFB.  Works flawlessly as far as I can see.

Just to say that although Snap are based in CHCH, they do have an AKL handover as well as WLGTN so you're no longer diverted down south unless the handover point is full, which is why I'm peering in Wellington at the moment.

I'm on snap ufb...updates are way too fast as they download before i get a chance to schedule.....and, very few issues.

Occasionally when joining a server I get an error, but, that is the exception rather than the rule.

It would be nice if there was a NZ server--although, my ping to Aus is around 29ms which is not too bad.

Just need more time....

TCL used to have BF3 servers, its a shame they dont do BF4 servers...

none the less, 55/10 VDSL

We actually won't divert users if a handover point is full - we don't want to be making decisions like 'oh, it's just a few users who will get sub-optimal routing' - that doesn't happen here. We order a bigger handover in advance of filling the existing :-)
The only time we'd consider that is in an equipment failure scenario where we can't get in to replace whatever it is - e.g., a health and safety hazard prevents us doing so. Even then, most of our kit has redundant components to avoid failures causing serious impact.

... On the topic though, I have Origin and BF3/4. I'll give these a thrash this evening and see what I find...

I'm curious then, as my hand over via speedtest appears to be in Wellington at the moment where by it used to be Auckland when Speedtest is picking the closest server; this has also been confirmed by Steam with Steamguard suggesting I was in Wellington.
