It is good till you have any issue.

Pros:

The speed is fine. I was on world net before SlingShot. Since I switched to Slingshot the downloading speed got extremely improved. I would say 5 times faster. The plan I had with SlingShot was even slower speed one and it was a lot faster than world-net one. ...read more

Cons:

Customer service ruined everything. Their reps had to go back to manager all the time. Which means I am waiting till they get the answer from someone. Also when I talk to manager they don't have answer and switch me to someone without any solution.

They also have connection issues time by time.

Great service. Bend over backwards to help.

Pros:

Can email or phone them. They get back to you really quickly. When our VDSL modem played up, they couriered a new model within days.
Billing simple and efficient.

Cons:

None. I will upgrade to fibre with them.

Lost us as a customer because they would not answer phone & emails regarding upgrading to unlimited broadband at a competitive rate.
Appears they would rather give a discounted rate to new customers than retain existing customers (4 years).

Pros:

Once connected very good reliability and speed.

Cons:

Took a year to get Fibre broadband - no doubt Chorus was the problem.
Took 4 routers before we were able to get a working landline phone connection - poor problem assessment by Slingshot and lack of knowledge by Chorus.

English not always a first language with support staff so communication not always clear but seem technically competent. Maybe a crash course in Kiwi-isms could be developed

Pros:

Cheap, fast (enough for browsing / video, no idea about gaming)

Cons:

Few teething issues with setup, particuarly regarding the VOIP line

Periodically is slowed down. By comparison with my overseas experience, so-called Ultra Fast does not even come close to what I have experienced.

Pros:

Good after-sales service, and good attention to issues.

Cons:

Intermittent speed, and does met my expectations os "Ultra fast".
