Terrible experience. Signed up two weeks ago, was supposed to have connection a week ago and I'm still waiting. I've called them no less than ten times, they just don't give a f***. Lodged a fault and technician was supposed to come over to the house, but left a message saying "he couldn't make it". Have to wait two more days now. Customer service says that all I can do is "wait" WHAT A JOKE. SLINGSHOT WORST INTERNET SERVICE you have made me lost my time.

Been with them for years. Fairly internet savvy so been able to sort most connection or internet problems myself. On rare occasions I have called they were helpful. Earlier wait times were longer than I'd like but all good otherwise now.
Getting speeds up & down in excess of plan I pay for. Given upgrade last year for free on downloads from 30mps to 50 & improved speed getting close to that many days.
Found that I've been able to negotiate a deal when I need to change/upgrade. Last time was in March '17 & I was offered a replacement router for free - my system improved vastly (sweet!) ...read more

Been with Slingshot for a number of years - haven't had too many blips & am happy overall. Recently noticed that the prices for our current plan had come down on the website but we were still paying a higher amount. Gave customer service a call and they sorted that out straight away, and threw in 3 months of credit since they had been overcharging us $10 a month for 9 months. Now this is only fair, if not going slightly above & beyond, but considering some other companies I've had to deal with don't give a toss about current customers, I'd say it's pretty good. ...read more

I feel like Slingshot are focused on income not customers
We're still on ADSL; it's surprisingly fast: download 16Mbps
Slingshot increased our monthly charge a month after we began our contract in 2015. They then overcharged us for the next six months. Our landline lost connection for two months. They charged us for insurance when we didn't want it, and they insisted we'd stared a new contract after they'd failed to upgrade us to VDSL leaving us on the same ADSL plan ...read more
