Problems started right after connection: 75% of websites were not working (including their portal even) - just timing out with lost packets in tracer after 3rd hop. With VPN everything worked - e.g. the issue was a misconfiguration on their side. Technical support sounded professional at first, but failed to even log the issue. Next day on second try issue was logged with estimated 72 hour resoultion timeframe. Switched to other provider in 3 days after connection with this misery continued. No follow-ups, no explanation provided, just ignorance. I would highly discourage anyone from even considering a switch! ...read more

Slingshot- broadband rubbish, service disinterested and annoying, and trying to get an account that works frustrating. So now I am back shopping for an internet provider that can combine service and good pricing.
Pros
Cons
Slow broadband with lagging. Account system problematic. Non responsive or slow customer service, and when Slungshot responds it is with a multichoice do it yourself email, which 4/5 times does not answer the question you posed in the email. They have managed to kick Orcon off the most useless internet provider. ...read more

Total lack of concern despite the fact they know I am elderly, partially sighted and with multiple health problems and have had a dead landline (my only mean of communication) for a week. Can't even ring 111 if needed. I don't wonder they are rates 116th in the ISP category; their CS is useless.
Pros
Cheap but not cheapest.
Cons
Slow, inconsistent connection; appalling CS
