We all know how confusing it is that ISPs advertise the same speeds... but are their speeds actually the same? According to the latest ADSL Truenet.nz report, the speed differences for NZ websites continue to show a wide spread on ADSL providers.

Been with them for years. Fairly internet savvy so been able to sort most connection or internet problems myself. On rare occasions I have called they were helpful. Earlier wait times were longer than I'd like but all good otherwise now.
Getting speeds up & down in excess of plan I pay for. Given upgrade last year for free on downloads from 30mps to 50 & improved speed getting close to that many days.
Found that I've been able to negotiate a deal when ...read more

Been with Slingshot for a number of years - haven't had too many blips & am happy overall. Recently noticed that the prices for our current plan had come down on the website but we were still paying a higher amount. Gave customer service a call and they sorted that out straight away, and threw in 3 months of credit since they had been overcharging us $10 a month for 9 months. Now this is only fair, if not going slightly above & beyond, but considering some other companies I'v ...read more

I feel like Slingshot are focused on income not customers
We're still on ADSL; it's surprisingly fast: download 16Mbps
Slingshot increased our monthly charge a month after we began our contract in 2015. They then overcharged us for the next six months. Our landline lost connection for two months. They charged us for insurance when we di ...read more

Very good technical support but unfriendly financial section.
Price is good and the technical support people very good.
Had a misadventure with the financial side with credits not being applied and no prior warning given. Would have changed ISP were it not for the calibre of their technical support people.

Slingshot routers only offer to 2.4G and not 5G - so Wifi speeds around the house are crap
They want us to upgrade to the $229 plan so we can have 5G
What a fucking joke
I have sent them an email asking them to provide the 5G capable router
Or I will cancel my subscription Request all monies payed be returned and move back to Vodafone to offer 5G
This is akin to theft and most Slingshot customers do know it
Perhaps you should/ could confirm this aspect of all ...read more
Speed and reliability are as expected great
No fffff........... 5g !!!!!
This technology has been available since Fred stopped pedalling his car!!

Adsl. Worst 9months of my interweb life. Worst connection always dropping out. Slowest speed ive ever had....worst than dial-up 10years ago!! Terrible customer service, went through a 10 part series of testing for Slingshot then they said said it might cost me $240 to look at it??! Paying early disconnection fee and lowering my blood pressure.
They never increased my bill without notice like vodafone did after 6years of loyalty.
This box isnt big enough to list all the negative aspects. You suck balls slingshot. .

Over the 8 years I have been with slingshot I have felt their service has become increasingly less satisfactory. It always takes so long to get hold of them when phoning their call Centre. They are often offering new customers good deals but were not interested in offering me, a long time customer a similar deal so I will go elsewhere now.
Cheap if prepared to be tied in to a contract.
Unreliable customer service.
