Very good technical support but unfriendly financial section.

Pros:

Price is good and the technical support people very good.

Cons:

Had a misadventure with the financial side with credits not being applied and no prior warning given. Would have changed ISP were it not for the calibre of their technical support people.

Hi
Slingshot routers only offer to 2.4G and not 5G - so Wifi speeds around the house are crap
They want us to upgrade to the $229 plan so we can have 5G
What a fucking joke
I have sent them an email asking them to provide the 5G capable router
Or I will cancel my subscription Request all monies payed be returned and move back to Vodafone to offer 5G

This is akin to theft and most Slingshot customers do know it

Perhaps you should/ could confirm this aspect of all providers

Should you require further information please contact me Pete
...read more

Pros:

Smooth install
Speed and reliability are as expected great

Cons:

No fffff........... 5g !!!!!

This technology has been available since Fred stopped pedalling his car!!

Adsl. Worst 9months of my interweb life. Worst connection always dropping out. Slowest speed ive ever had....worst than dial-up 10years ago!! Terrible customer service, went through a 10 part series of testing for Slingshot then they said said it might cost me $240 to look at it??! Paying early disconnection fee and lowering my blood pressure.

Pros:

They never increased my bill without notice like vodafone did after 6years of loyalty.

Cons:

This box isnt big enough to list all the negative aspects. You suck balls slingshot. .

Over the 8 years I have been with slingshot I have felt their service has become increasingly less satisfactory. It always takes so long to get hold of them when phoning their call Centre. They are often offering new customers good deals but were not interested in offering me, a long time customer a similar deal so I will go elsewhere now.

Pros:

Cheap if prepared to be tied in to a contract.

Cons:

Unreliable customer service.

They've been good actually. Only changing due to better deal elsewhere.

Pros:

No down time in over 3 years

Cons:

Support has degraded as they got bigger. Went from answering calls straight away to long hold times.

Poor connection often have to turn the router off and on again to reconnect, Recently bought a laptop but cant connect due to there being another device already attached, not good if your living in a house with a few people.
