Slingshot were great until you needed to talk with someone. There is little comfort in being told to check the online help when you can not get online! We were with slingshot for at least 8 years, so some recognition of loyalty would have been nice. I was annoyed to be told we still had to give one months notice even after all the $$$ that we had given them!

Slingshot are a decent provider with pleasant customer service. Just not competitively priced, and the supplied modem is no longer state of the art.
Good speed over fibre.
Modem isn’t the best. Price is no longer competitive. The real sting is the 30 days notice to terminate. Just an unnecessary rip off.

For a gigabit connection this connection is disappointing. Used to regularly get download speeds >800mbps but since March very rarely get over 300mbps. Only time I ever here from them is when the bill is due.
Very few outages.
Supplied modem is rubbish and not even worth the delivery fee, lucky to get 30% of advertised speed, no communication with customers asides from billing.

Worst internet provider. Doesn’t reply to my email (even though they are supposed to get back to me within 1-2 biz days) and I pretty much am not paying for a proper functioning wifi, it’s been almost 3 months. Would give no stars but 1 is the lowest.
