The customer service at Slingshot is shocking. Whilst you are talking to them about joining, they respond extremely fast, but once you join and have a problem, they don't even want to know you, just don't respond to emails, so if you are thinking of switching and want a company that offers service, then take Slingshot off your list as there is no customer service. Can't wait for my locked in term to expire.
Pros
nothing
Cons
need to improve their service

I choose the Broadband/Power/HomePhone/Cellphone bundle with Broadband unlimited both in speed and amount downloaded. Performance during the period since connection of all services has been excellent in every way. Just can't fault it and initially I had a couple of questions which were dealt with fast, professionally and talking to someone in NZ for support made it quick and easy as well.
Monthly account via email is detailed and easy to follow. I've got mine on auto payment, so the whole deal is carefree. ...read more
Pros
Top end performance, care free at a great price overall.
Cons
Power price is a bit higher than I would like. See how that goes through the winter months.

Email servers and some websites are either blocked or throttled. I've contacted Slingshot multiple times - They promise to get back to me after they have investigated - 2 months later, still no response.
Pros
its cheap
Cons
its useless. I'll leave them as soon as my contract is up.

Worst ISP EVER!!!
I was a loyal customer for over 8 years, always in credit. Never complained. After moving house and unforeseen circumstances, my account was canceled. Missed an invoice and that was that. Five years of business emails, personal emails gone!! Wiped out with no way of retrieving them. Customer service was non-existent. When finally getting through and making sure I was in credit and try to retrieve my emails, the lady on the phone's exact words were "Nope". *** Slingshot!!
Pros
NONE!!
Cons
WAY TO MANY!!
