Good customer helpline.

Dont waste your time considering Slingshot as a internet provider, you may save a dollar with a good promotion but they will find the way to rip you off later on. E.g.: disconnection charges, claiming for the return of a modem that wasnt theirs, sneding out 2 wrong invoices after cancellation date was passed, taking months to return the money they have wrongly charge you, customer service is the worst of its kind!

Following slingshot taking over Stuff, I renegotiated my plan down from the $89.95 to $75/mth. The first mth was correct, then $93.95? @ mths later when I realised their mistake I emailed them to query. Got std reply next day that they intend to answer within 1 day. After 1 week I emailed again to check. After 9 days I rang, then the first lie "your call is important to us", followed shortly by the 2nd lie "an agent will be with you shortly". After 30 min I get "there is 9 callers ahead of you in the queue". Their very obvious modus operandi is to hope that at least 50% of the callers give up in frustration. However they have a DD in place that enables them to take whatever they like from my bank - and no major banks (except Kiwi) will allow a person to cancel a DD. Rock and hard place. Meanwhile still waiting on phone, missing 3 incoming calls... ...read more
Pros
