The ADSL option for Computers in Homes families was withdrawn on 1 December 2014. SNAP will honour existing pre-paid contracts through to the end of the 12-month subsidised period, but thereafter families should arrange an internet package with their existing telephone service provider. The cost of retaining a SNAP internet connection while the phone service is with another provider, such as Spark, for example, is much more expensive than procuring both services from the same provider.
Families are welcome to transition to a UFB connection when their 12-month subsidised internet period comes to an end. However, they will need to cover the cost of a SNAP Fritzbox modem at a cost of $200. The ongoing monthly charges will be same as for naked DSL ($60/month).
