Have been with Slingshot for a year and a half on broadband and power. Never had any issues. Upgraded to gig plan recently from 100 and noticed a difference with WFH and gaming concurrently, suspect I need a better modem/setup to get the most from it though. When I've called through I've always spoken with someone helpful, although they do encourage resolution through email/chat functions (which I've never used).

Support is crap, they dont look after there existing customer and it's stupid that a existing customer cannot get the new deals. Look after your existing customers.
You speak to one call center person who offers you a deal and then another one 10 minutes apart and they cant offer you the same deal but worse and cant explain why they cant offer the same deal.
Straight up useless

Fine until you need to contact them. Slingshot have tried to automate their help process and it has not worked. I logged a help desk call 20 days ago and am still waiting for some service. Despite their TV adds there is no way to speak to a human.
Their on line user portal is good.
They don’t value customers and don’t have a way to provide appropriate customer support.
