As for uni stundents, they need to be picked on as much and as often as possible. Lazy scum.

Fred, B.Sc (soon B.Bs)

Well I can't argue with that logic, just remember we Uni students (or ex in my case now) are the ones that keep your Maccas warm and your car full of petrol! We are the life blood of this fair nation.........


Around here (Auckland), all the petrol stations are self service these days.

Just to give everyone an update, I ended up joining SNAP and I couldnt be happier. I was with Xtra before and they sucked big time.

My connection is now much better with SNAP and my Quota is a lot more that the pathetic 6GB that I was getting with Xtra.

Snap has been fine for a few months now... although I have not been pushing the limits of my plan.
Someone has stated that Snap supplies Canterbury University.. and that place will be coming online, so to speak, late Fed start of March. I expect the performance to go to cra p then.. cr ap being Youtube caching during the afternoon evenings.

If by crap you mean youtube caching during peak hours ONLY and nothing else then I would happily live with this :)

I'll post this now, I am very happy with the speed test just undertaken. In March, if I remember, I will post again, this time a night on a Saturday.

I joined Snap back in August last year. After waiting for 4 months for a port to come free on my exchange I finally got a connection.

I have to say I have been very impressed by both their speed and when required support.
