Absolutely disgusted by this Internet providers ethics and communication. Would NOT recommend this to anyone EVER.

Pros:

NIL

Cons:

Overcharged billing account was then blocked, then charged an extra $200 worth of data AFTER account was closed on top of that.
They refuse to take any responsibility even with all evidence and statements provided.
Further action is currently being taken.

Pros:

I switched to VDSL a year ago and never thought to check the speed until recently when I was having netflix problems. I has been gone above 16 Mbps, which VDSL pre ports to be a lot faster than that. I have done all the testing and still no luck. When I asked for help one several occasions online I was told to ring up and book an appointment. Well, that just peeved me off that I had to ring them rather than the onus be on them to sort out the problem that I was having with their service. I decided to cancel the account, yet again I was told I had to ring.

Don't go slingshot they suck!! ...read more

The only Telco to reduce my contract price without asking, and during the contract period - well done

OK for basic web browsing, email checking, etc.

Pros:

Great value for money - unlimited adsl plan - for very normal internet use

Cons:

Horrible speeds, high ping 400-999+ especially afternoons and evenings, not for downloading/uploading large files, playing online games or watching 4k on Yuotube, Netflix, etc.

Modem packed up and they didn't want to help. Purchased a new modem and because it wasn't one of theirs they did not want to help me get it connected. Their attitude changed rapidly when I told them I would move to the opposition
