Other ISPs knock on my door on a monthly basis and EVEN IF they could beat 2D on price (which they generally can't), I would never move, and the AWESOME support by @NickMack and the 2D team is a MAJOR reason why.

 

I joined Snap many years ago after bouncing around various ISPs who's service varied from 'average' to 'negligent' and Snap was a breath of fresh air both in terms of their network performance and their outstanding level of service.

 

When 2D bought Snap I was somewhat apprehensive that the great service I had been receiving would disappear, but I'm happy to say that it did not!

 

Having an ISP who is willing to talk to their customers, at a technical level, and work with them to troubleshoot and diagnose issues is extremely valuable.

 

Having access to technical resources here on GZ is a valuable part of that interaction and I for one value it immensely.

I think 2D do a spectacular job on these forums. Particularly around the exciting low-level networking, routes, and latency support that is very difficult to address via the normal support process.

 

And on that note, I had a question. I've noticed it seems that 2degrees have dropped Level 3 and NTT as upstream transit providers? Is that a permanent change? I would hope that network performance is still going to remain a priority... :)

Hiya,

 

You are correct, our direct connectivity to the US is going via alternative paths, we also changed the termination from our MX480 directly into our Core PTX network - Performance is something we pride ourselves in, so no change in strategy there :-)

 

 

 

Nick.

Hi Nick

 

I have generally been pleased with 2 degrees support. However, this morning I lodged an issue with support and have yet to receive a response. I'm not sure what your expected response times are but I think >8 hours is unsatisfactory.

 

 

 

Thanks

 

Martin

Hiya,

How did you log a ticket, via email? If you issue is important and time critical, my suggestion is you call care on 0800 022 022.

Nick.

It was by email. In the past I have usually had a response within a couple of hours

And I just tried calling - several times - and get "the person you are calling cannot be reached at this time"
