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.

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

Was with them for a year. I was getting average fibre speeds of about 9Mb/s and constantly contacting help-desk. They would get speed back up to 70 to 100mb/s but then within 30 mins, speed would go back down to below 10. I thought they were scamming me. Will never use slingshot again, for anything.
Pros
None
Cons
Constantly Slow fibre speeds. Ineffective help desk
