Became very intermittent , with constant (and often protracted) drop outs over last two months of 2018 (coincidentally after fibre became available in our street). Didn't have time to contact slingshot support (its never a quick process with any ISP). Eventually quit them in January (the timing was partly driven by the fact we were moving, though we would have quit them anyway).
Also just received unexpectedly hefty final bill from them - which I will query when I can find time to stay on hold and/or talk to an automated answering directory for a while. ...read more

Phone problem reported 4 months ago after innumerable calls to Slingshot the problem remains and they keep requesting that I document 4 missed calls during a 24 hour period. Even after I complied twice, they still require a further missed call documentation every time I ring up.
The worst support I have ever encounted.

Key for moving was speed and cost
Value for money
As noted above moved due to blue for money with speed as main driver

Had signed a 2 years contract from Jan 2017 and had never been happy with the spend and reliability of their service. Been talking to the technical helpdesk and did not resolve issue at all. All they did was to ask me to change different channel and try it for 30 mins and still not reliable at all. Also, they have increased the price of my plan from $84.95 to $87.25, due to telecommunication levy, but $84.95 is still being offered to all new customers! They are good at getting new customers, but doing a shit job keeping existing customers happy. ...read more
Nothing good to say... Go figure.
After trying for so many months (22 months into the contract), I contacted the retention team and they initially offered me to upgrade my plan to the Giga plan so that they can offer me to get the modem at $99. After I talked to another retention staff, she managed to send me a better modem and it worked like a charm. This make me more upset as I was paying for unreliable internet for the past 22 months, due to a poor performing modem that they had supplied me. I have decided to cancel my contract and switch to a different provider, who is happy to provide me with the same modem (the better one) at no cost and I do not even have to upgrade my plan. Thank you Slingshot, but NO THANKS!!!
