They still haven't launched the new website, Snap seem to have a different idea to me on what "soon" is.

Given that static ipv6 addresses have been listed as 'coming soon' on the snap website for over a two years now I don't think snap's definition of 'coming soon' matches most people's or the dictionaries definition for that matter. ;p

"Soon" = "Before I die" ?

Bigpipe's $79/month for UFB 100/20 and unlimited data is pretty appealing.

Will be interested to see if Snap can stay in the game!

All i can say is the wait will be worth it :)

maybe not with the bottom feeding cheaper plans as that isnt quite where snap fit into the market... but they defiantly seem to be bringing great things to the table, just wait it out!

Speculation or insider knowledge? Hoping the latter.

100/50 for $139 Snap or $99 for 200/20 with Bigpipe, dont need the upload so it's a no brainer at the moment. it better be soon.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

even given the price, ild still pick snap.. guess im just loyal to them at this point? their support especially their social and NOC teams are such a pleasure to deal with!

in saying that, i wouldnt say no to a second connection from bigpipe.. more toys to play with right?


head to head comparison would be interesting considering how much in common netgate is between the two.

i have been with Snap for 7  years so it would take a lot to move but a $40 month saving is not to be sniffed at. it wouldnt have to be  much but as long as it is soon.

I'd love some better pricing for business customers. Currently with VDSL spending around $270 a month for 575GB worth of data. About to jump to Orcon Business VDSL which is unlimited data for $119. Love the service, but less than half the price for more data isn't something we'll be passing up.

Tried talking to snap before you jump ship? they might be able to offer you something...

Bigpipe social and support people are pretty awesome too. 

I have visited snap offices with my course though, pretty cool place and people, but they probably need to try and be more competitive, Which would lead to people picking snap over other providers.

If they can be more competitive while keeping their great service, They will be even more awesome.
