Looks good, more expensive than Telecom but I imagine you will get a better service. Sucks I wont be able to sign up for at least a month and a half since I'm too busy to get the install done.

Unfortunately can't compare it at each data pack level as that requires going to the signup page.

Looks good. Having just signed up with their special $95 100/50 with 150gb data plan if I can switch to this while keeping the base discount it'll be all the sweeter... looking forward to seeing how Snap's network performs in a few weeks when everyone has switched over.

Did they not have this before on UFB without a data pack? Does the 80gb have this?

At least it looks like existing users are not effected, just had a look at my account summary and it still says the original :)

no traffic management at all sounds dangerous.  
Given every other ISP has some kind of traffic management in their terms, (even if not yet implemented,)  Snap is likely to be the ISP that attracts all the worst sorts of vampires who like to smash through 100Mbps of torrenting at peak times, slowing everybody else down.

Does the homeowner have to be there for the install or do you just need somebody to let the Chorus dude in?

just called up to switch over to unlimited, but since my billing period restarts on the 12th, the support member couldnt change until my june 12th.  saying i would get charged additional for the 500GB ive got this month.

could someone here from snap sort this out for me?  ive used about 48GB so far this month (started on the 12th) and would like to switch to unlimited immediately (theres humblebundle sales on atm :)).  

can someone also confirm static ips wont be effect by this and still be $5 a month?

so, does this mean the 350G and the 500G (or was it 550 i forget since downgrading..) are going to be retired and replaced with unlimited?


ill be watching VERY closely to see how things go.


props to snap for the whole no management clause, ild hope there is some fineprint somewhere that says if your a twat who sits there at 100% usage all month long month on end sorta thing, you can have a slapping ;)

Am I missing something? 
I am on UFB 100/50 . 

Snap just reduced my monthly data from 150gb to 80gb , with no decrease in price. 

How am I better off ? It looks worse to me.

It will change on the next billing rollover. I expect.  

They can't reduce caps mid-month as it might push people over cap by no fault of their own.
