intended to switch to slingshot and your web site seemed to be good
Pros
slingshot response but the customer service was very inexperience and requested me to talk with their technical team. I think their competitors will help me.
Cons
hope you can feedback slingshot if they could follow up new customer properly

Switching to increase speed, data cap and to get a new router.
Pros
My old plan is the cheapest in the land
Cons
No free upgrade to latest speed/cap - need to pay 40% more to upgrade, which is a lot given I've been a long time customer.

The fibre package was frequently only capable of streaming at SD or lower quality. Few reliability issues though.
Pros
Reliable
Cons
Low speeds

I am paying a small fortune for Slingshot's ultrafibre plan, which they advertise as supporting simultaneous streaming on multiple devices with speeds up to 1000 mpbs up and 500 down. Like most ISPs, they set me up with a standard modem/router, which could not begin to service a medium-to-large house on its own. In fact, the signal is only detectable on one floor of the house and then without speeds of about 10/10 (or 1/1000 of what I am paying for). Purchased an expensive Google mesh router system to extend wifi to the rest of the house. Works, but pretty slow (100/200). Asked Slingshot to either bridge their modem for me or walk me through doing it myself -- which is standard tech support at any ISP that I have ever had -- and they refused. Claimed that it was a "non-standard practice" that they did not support. So, I am paying for ultra high speed internet and receiving something between high speed and dial up in my house, because there is no way to bridge my modem for networking. Sure glad that I am locked into a 12-month contract with a company with email-only tech support. ...read more
Pros
They can deliver ultra high speed fibre into your house.
Cons
You will not actually be able to network your devices at much more than dial up speeds, and having high speed internet that is unusable is actually worse (and more expensive) than not having it available at all.
