Slingshot NZ know that in the modern world, it is crucial to stay online, but they also know how confusing it might be to get online. They have worked hard to make Slingshot easy, affordable and hassle-free – because this guys know you have other important things to do and spend your time on than sorting your internet.

They are dedicated to making broadband simple, affordable, easy to use, and cover the needs of a modern family – whether they are intensely streaming videos, gaming all day, or just spending their time on Facebook.

Slingshot broadband is part of the Vocus Group of companies.

Slingshot Broadband offer ultrafast Fibre & Naked Broadband Plans for New Zealand.

Slingshot routers only offer to 2.4G and not 5G - so Wifi speeds around the house are crap
They want us to upgrade to the $229 plan so we can have 5G
What a fucking joke
I have sent them an email asking them to provide the 5G capable router
Or I will cancel my subscription Request all monies payed be returned and move back to Vodafone to offer 5G

This is akin to theft and most Slingshot customers do know it

Perhaps you should/ could confirm this aspect of all providers

Should you require further information please contact me Pete

Adsl. Worst 9months of my interweb life. Worst connection always dropping out. Slowest speed ive ever had....worst than dial-up 10years ago!! Terrible customer service, went through a 10 part series of testing for Slingshot then they said said it might cost me $240 to look at it??! Paying early disconnection fee and lowering my blood pressure.
They never increased my bill without notice like vodafone did after 6years of loyalty.
This box isnt big enough to list all the negative aspects. You suck balls slingshot. .

Over the 8 years I have been with slingshot I have felt their service has become increasingly less satisfactory. It always takes so long to get hold of them when phoning their call Centre. They are often offering new customers good deals but were not interested in offering me, a long time customer a similar deal so I will go elsewhere now.
Cheap if prepared to be tied in to a contract.
Unreliable customer service.

They've been good actually. Only changing due to better deal elsewhere.
No down time in over 3 years
Support has degraded as they got bigger. Went from answering calls straight away to long hold times.
