Extremely disappointed. Slingshot advertised and made promises with regard to performance. Upload and download speeds were less than 10% of the afore mentioned. Tried to work with Slingshot to resolve the issues and they were unable to offer a solution to the poor performance. Within days of connection I had informed Slingshot the service provided was "not fit for use". After repeated requests for help I end up cancelling the service and was then hit with a contract cancellation fee of $199 and the threat that if not paid SlingShot would send debt collectors. An extremely disappointing outcome. I would warm potential customers against considering Slingshot. ...read more

I really regret changing over to Slingshot, have had internet problems ever since, especially when I moved house 4 months into the contract. Their communication is extremely poor. They did not appropriately contact me to inform of delays with new connections and their responses to my emails were so incredibly slow I'm sure that post would be faster! They also have their phones set up in a way that it is near impossible to speak to a real person, have succeeded once with this!!
The new connection is only.fast in one room, but the main rooms we use j ternet in it basically cuts off completely, and that's even with a wifi extender. Our last house was bigger than this one and we rarely had issues for the three years we lived there using a different provider.
Also we were for 6 months half price....we had no inernet for around a month, and whilst they did not charge for that month they did chuck us straight to full price for what would have been our 6th month paying.
I need to contact them regarding the problems we are having, but have been unsuccessful, hence, the review.

Terrible. Like others, cut me off on a Sunday afternoon when I had already paid bill due to their antiquated automated system that does not check accounts before it acts. Hard to sort it out - only way I could was to pretend I was paying bill again. Unhelpful website and 0800 numbers. Found out I have been paying well over the odds for a long time - why does this company treat its long time customers so badly?
Pros
Their call centre workers are good.
Cons
Everything else.

A reasonable ISP with stock standard pricing. Reliable connection although their routers are pretty average quality. Very few issues but it can take time to get support on the phone when there are.
Pros
Reliable connection, good speeds, market average pricing
Cons
Poor router - weak WiFi signal, best to get your own.
