Agreed.  That's why I went for someone else.  Not that was the only point, but in he end it swayed me.

Your old site wasn't great, but at least it worked...


+1...

I must say that whilst I am a happy Snap customer, I am NOT a fan of the new webpage - I find the information and details confusing! For a start, "new" plans were offered, but for someone who has just looked at the site "recently", there is no mention that these plans were "new", or that Snap was introducing new plans, etc, so fo a moment I really DID wonder has Snap suddenly become someone else and whether I visited the correct page or not!  And not to mention support pages (which really should be one of your more importnt pages) is missing!

And with the new account page it broke my Firefox NetUsage meter! Frown  Definitely not please about that!

So, sorry to say Snap, not a great effort in my opinion...

gjm: Had a look on the snap website at the staff profiles but couldnt see you. Where are you Ralph?


I heard Ralph was a fictional employee of SNAP who doesn't really exist in the real world, a little like the team mascot ;)

It is interesting reading what's in the background of one of their network engineers :)

Thanks for your other website feedbacks, I'll pass it to the Devs


While your passing feedback to them, could you please pass the following.

*as per previous note* Was too long to quote :)


And the major one.

NO SUPPORT INFO 

Yep great new site and now i'm stuck trying to set up a connection trying to remember the connection details and find your new site hasn't got any of your help documents or setup info.

Your old site wasn't great, but at least it worked...

Worst signup experience ever... 



Yikes!! I would agree that it hasn't been the best transition. I guess we were just too eager to give out the new plans.  I have passed your feedback.

If you have signed up with us, your first month is free. Silver lining? :)

Ah silver lining maybe, I have just learnt through a random post on your facebook that the free month entails been locked in for 12 months. Not really keen for a 12 month contract, where can we opt out? Also when will customers be contacted directly and informed of the conditions?

I'm already a snap customer, i was signing up a non computer literate family member.

Please just make sure the site gets fixed.

I'm wanting to switch another 2 family member over and i'm just not going to bother trying until its fixed, they would be to confused going through the sign up process.

So two weeks later you still have no support info set up.

Very disappointing that the basics can't be done right.
