So Xnet are completely hopeless now. Just worthless. I can't even successfully load most international websites during off-peak hours
Will things improve with Snap? I won't just be jumping from the frying pan to the fire? How good is Snap, really? I need to be able to use BitTorrent (modest number of downloads - mostly following TV shows I like and the occasional movie), download large numbers of podcasts in iTunes (Podcasts have basically replaced TV for me and the video podcasts especially can be huge - and way to many are not hosted on servers that support resuming *sigh* so I really need connections NOT to crap out or be too slow), and game with reasonably low latency (mainly MMORPGs).
The main reason I'm considering Snap is I'm on naked DSL and there are bugger all ISPs offering decent naked DSL plans From what I can see Snap seems the best (not considering Xnet which is utterly broken, and Slingshot can't even move people from naked DSL to naked DSL yet!!! ) right now in terms of pricing, but correct me if I'm wrong!
