Ok, so there is a locked thread a few stops down the page, but it did de-rail a bit.
I was looking at joining Snap as my current experience with Orcon getting on my nerves.

Orginally I was going to join the Snap Pro plan, get 60GB of data for $100 - giving me 8GB more data a month for the same cost of Orcon. However, after looking at the uncap option, I thought that I could save some dollars by purchasing the 20GB plan and then using a few Uncap data sessions and use those to get the rest of the data I normally would purchase.

In the 18hrs over the 3 nights that the uncap is active, generally how well does Snap perform? Is it easy to get 10/20GB per 3 nights etc?

Thanks

I just tried it for the first time last night. I only ran my downloads for 4 hours and got 11gb so still had 2 more hours if needed for that day.

So I guess at that rate over the full 3 days (18 hours) you should be able to get 30+GB with ease.

Pitty I have nothing else to download for the next 2 night I have it for free.

im surprised (and glad) that the unlimited plan people don't take a closer look at Snap , if you use that $5 plan you could theoretically get 200 gig of data a month for the same price as Slingshots unlimited plan with the bonus of fast speeds all the time.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

I would'nt say fast all the time. I live in CHCH and finding it quite a bit slower than Big Time plan in the evenings. Watching online video thats not local is a waste of time.
