Snap has become the second ISP to start offering consumer UFB plans, joining state-owned Orcon on the fibre bandwagon.

The base Lightwave 30 plan provides up to 30Mbps down and 10Mbps up from $75 per month with 25GB of data and 1 VoIP phone line with free voicemail, caller ID and call waiting.

The Lightwave 100 plan has up to 100Mbps down and 50Mbps up, which starts at $110 per month for 50GB of data plus the voice services of the base plan.

By comparison, Orcon's plans start at 30GB for $75, and the telco is offering free services until the end of the year.

Snap hopes to entice residential customers with a deal that will see households who order a UFB service on a two-year term before October 31 receive a 145GB data pack add-on at no charge for the first 12 months of their contract term.

For businesses, Lightwave 30 offers up to 30Mbps down and 10Mbps upload speeds ($119 per month excluding GST). The monthly cost includes 25GB of data, 1 static IP address, five mail box accounts, and one VoIP phone line with free voicemail, caller ID plus call waiting.

Lightwave 100 provides up to 100Mbps down and 50Mbps uploads ($149 plus GST) and includes 50GB of data as standard plus the voice services of the base plan.
