Keeps on dropping out all the time?
Can’t think of any
Customer service was poor every time there was a problem

Slingshot went awry last year during their Fibre rollout. Tech came and put it "mostly" right. Never a good solid landline connection. This year they employed "bully boy" tactics when trying to get me to put in Fibre. Even though it was up to my landlord they kept trying to insist I go ahead without permission. In the meantime my internet has not worked at all for the last month and I still need to pay for it as I refuse to have another technician come and put on a leaky patch. I will not use Slingshot again. ...read more
Always willing to shift blame.
Bully boy tactics.

Ive been a slingshot customer of 3 years and everything was fine until I changed plans to combined power & fibre. 4 month in and still haven't received fibre, instead being overcharged on several occasions now. Customer Service has been terrible, of course everytime its a different agent with very strong (indian) accent that is often not to understand and the left hand doesnt seem to know what the right hand is doing. Would like to change providers.

Broadband plan and pricing were fine, however customer support was terrible, and am still awaiting a refund from bill over payment 3 months later. Would never use them again.

Pretty good service from Slingshot. They were reliable and their user portal fairly informative.
Good service
Price creep adds up
