Tried to get fibre but slingshot kept interfering in the process making it take weeks longer than necessary, billed me for the service before connection, cut my phone off and to top it all off the only "customer support" is emailing back and forth getting bizarre replies with nothing to do with the original queries.

They Cut off broadband and phone with only 24 hr notice only warning was automated. I had been paying $100 a month so had no idea the account was in arrears. No email warning. No email statements only way to check is online. I have a St. John’s medical alert so was very worried about not having it on. They made me resign when My daughter rang to follow up what happened and about terms and conditions was told to go to the website. waited 3 days still no phone or internet so cancelled with slingshot. Terrible customer service ...read more

a series of constant hassles, over getting hispeed wifi, charging for it before it was installed and not knowing it was never installed (twice) locking me into a contact that after more than2 years i still cannot get out of without penalty until nov 2019. Very unhappy! Tried the power too, similar experiences.
Pros
always worked
Cons
crap account system!

After being with Spark for years they put their price up so much. I wanted to keep the old landline as well and Slingshot offered a good deal that Spark weren't interested in matching. Friends had warned to stay away from Slingshot but I signed up 3 months ago anyway. The communication and change over was so smooth, the phone was only off for 10 mins and the ADSL internet speed is just as fast and reliable as before. Their service must have definitely improved lately. I can recommend Slingshot to anyone. I can't comment on their help line because I haven't needed it. ...read more
