I have been with slingshot broadband for over 8 years and the Broadband has been consistently good.
I haven't had to use their support service, so I don't know how good it is.

Pros:

The price is competitive
The monthly Data rollover is an awesome feature
Internet service is reliable
Speed is about right for the type of Broadband I have.

Cons:

None that I know of

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.

Have had nothing but terrible service from Slingshot and after putting up with it for too long we are on the move. Very unreliable network and no difference in speed when upgraded to Ultra Fast Fibre.

After several bad experiences i will NEVER recommend Slingshot to anyone.

Cons:

Everything

I should have read the reviews first. Service dropped out regularly, wireless installation required more phonecalls to support than acceptable. We have just moved house and despite the fact that I gave plenty of notification of the move, we have been nearly THREE WEEKS without any hint of when the service might be reconnected. Every time I call, customer service says the same thing: "Awww, umm...we should know in 24-48 hours...ummm". A seriously shit company.

Cons:

Customer service is virtually non-existent. They genuinely don't give a damn. Utterly useless service and crappy hardware.

incompetent support team who didn't know what UDP traffic was, nor would they do traceroutes to troubleshoot.

Pros:

they will sign you up for a deal

Cons:

You have to spend hours and hours on hold to do anything and then you reach incompetent support team.
