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.

Amongst the cheapest ISPs. The mobile ad-on for a mere $5 is good.
But although I checked before signing that they would allow me to use my own router, I was still sent a router. I returned it, but they still sought to charge me for it. I had difficulty getting that charge removed.

When Slingshot is working (as paid for), it's great. However there seems to be a constant issue every 4-6 months with disconnections and slow speeds. That in itself is frustrating, but once you have to deal with their 'Technical Support team' you'll soon discover how woefully annoying being a customer with them really is. The 'tech' help consists of them implying that it is your modem at fault almost everytime. Or the jackpoint that it is connected to. Everything but their service is the fault. However, every instance has resulted in the fault being anything but my equipment. Been with Slingshot for too long now. Will be changing to another ISP once we move house. ...read more
Pros
Speeds are great when working.
Cons
Unreliable. Inconsistent. Terribe aftersales support. Customer support is treadful. Phonecalls to lodge an issue is always a 45+ minute affair.

Slingshot went awry last year during their Fibre rollout. Tech came and put it "mostly" right. Never a good solid landline connection. This year they employed "bully boy" tactics when trying to get me to put in Fibre. Even though it was up to my landlord they kept trying to insist I go ahead without permission. In the meantime my internet has not worked at all for the last month and I still need to pay for it as I refuse to have another technician come and put on a leaky patch. I will not use Slingshot again. ...read more
Pros
Always willing to shift blame.
Cons
Bully boy tactics.
