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.

I have been on the same plan for a couple of years at least(40gb for $70 odd with landline). Their new plans offer much better data BUT they have not advised me of any better options. Upon contacting them vis email I was informed I would have to sign a 12 month contract to avail myself of these improved options.
Pros
Connection has been reliable and generally good speed.
Cons
Getting to talk to a real person is very difficult.

Absolutely disgusted by this Internet providers ethics and communication. Would NOT recommend this to anyone EVER.
Pros
NIL
Cons
Overcharged billing account was then blocked, then charged an extra $200 worth of data AFTER account was closed on top of that.
They refuse to take any responsibility even with all evidence and statements provided.
Further action is currently being taken.

I switched to VDSL a year ago and never thought to check the speed until recently when I was having netflix problems. I has been gone above 16 Mbps, which VDSL pre ports to be a lot faster than that. I have done all the testing and still no luck. When I asked for help one several occasions online I was told to ring up and book an appointment. Well, that just peeved me off that I had to ring them rather than the onus be on them to sort out the problem that I was having with their service. I decided to cancel the account, yet again I was told I had to ring. I have just sent another email saying that I want to cancel and asked for a reason why it has to be over the phone - is it contractual (which seems very odd). Don't go slingshot they suck!! ...read more
