From the start, Slingshot has been challenging the telco industry and fighting to give New Zealand families better value broadband, supported by amazing service.

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.

Slingshot broadband is part of the Vocus Group of companies.

Slingshot Broadband offer ultrafast Fibre & Naked Broadband Plans for New Zealand. 

They have a range of different broadband plans available. Some of their broadband plans include a home phone line whilst other broadband plans are like Naked Broadband and don't have a home telephone line.

The type of broadband connection you can get depends on your address and area. They offer all types of broadband connection, Fibre, VDSL and ADSL dependant on what is available in your broadband region.

Long sob story about loyal customer mistreated.

Technically, my service has been plagued by semi-regular disconnects during peak hours and wildly inaccurate data metering.

I have also been told no VDSL despite being in range of the local exchange, and another flat in the block having it from a separate provider.
Pros
Cheap 12 months
Consistent speeds (though not the fastest)
Fast connection to new place (moved twice)
Cons
Frequent disconnects
Questionable data metering
Non-transparent data billing for overages
Horrible phone support
Customer Account portal didn't work half the time

The speed is very slow. And more than the speed it is the stability which concerns me more.

No good in small town. Was OK in Auckland, bu now that I have moved to Dargaville unacceptably slow.
Pros
Price OK, reliablility of connection OK
Cons
Abismally slow. No 24/7 support. Week day support only. Staff very unhelpful.
