No issue with service or product, just looking to save money and switch to another provider with better value
Service and product fine
Cost is high compared to other providers and they never offered me anything for better value

Had a bad experience with service. Internet went down, called for someone to have a look and was given run around to check router as they saw no problem from their side... had to be persistent they send someone as I knew it can sometimes take days. Was given an estimate date, no follow up, problem was external. This Happened at least twice and the major second time it happened has left me disgruntled with the company.
Offers cheap home line option
Had excellent customer service once out of a handful of interactions

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.
