Old modem started making a squealing noise but "shouldn't be the modem" Took ages for them to agree to send a new modem. After new fiber cable laid by Chorus internet kept dropping off and on all our computers & phones. Slingshot would reset modem & would work for awhile then would drop off again. We would have a "secured connection" with "No internet" Slingshot was no help with solving the problem.

Maybe I'm just stupid, but even after I found out about the 30 day notice to cancel (too late). I took another look at their T&C's the 30 day notice didn't stand out as obvious.
Didn't really pay it much attention when I switched from stuff fibre to slingshot as there was no 30 day notice with stuff which is owned by vocus the same as slingshot.
I guess dummy beware.
Pros
None

The price is fine and the wifi speed is as it should be but the signal is very weak. Sky sport buffers with no other devices running and the modem very near by. I can only just get reception in my room in our 108sq mtr house. Also they cut us off after just 7 days of late payment with no warning.
Pros
Reasonable price
Cons
Rubbish signal strength. Very poor customer service regarding late bill payment
