Phone problem reported 4 months ago after innumerable calls to Slingshot the problem remains and they keep requesting that I document 4 missed calls during a 24 hour period. Even after I complied twice, they still require a further missed call documentation every time I ring up.

Cons:

The worst support I have ever encounted.

Key for moving was speed and cost

Pros:

Value for money

Cons:

As noted above moved due to blue for money with speed as main driver

Had signed a 2 years contract from Jan 2017 and had never been happy with the spend and reliability of their service. Been talking to the technical helpdesk and did not resolve issue at all. All they did was to ask me to change different channel and try it for 30 mins and still not reliable at all. Also, they have increased the price of my plan from $84.95 to $87.25, due to telecommunication levy, but $84.95 is still being offered to all new customers! They are good at getting new customers, but doing a shit job keeping existing customers happy. ...read more

Pros:

Nothing good to say... Go figure.

Cons:

After trying for so many months (22 months into the contract), I contacted the retention team and they initially offered me to upgrade my plan to the Giga plan so that they can offer me to get the modem at $99. After I talked to another retention staff, she managed to send me a better modem and it worked like a charm. This make me more upset as I was paying for unreliable internet for the past 22 months, due to a poor performing modem that they had supplied me. I have decided to cancel my contract and switch to a different provider, who is happy to provide me with the same modem (the better one) at no cost and I do not even have to upgrade my plan. Thank you Slingshot, but NO THANKS!!!

Internet keeps cutting on an off over the last year. Got worse over the last month, to the point it cut off altogether after bad weather. Slingshot support kept booking Chorus techs on days i told them i would be at work. Finally Chorus guy arrived an told us nothing wrong with our lines, but Slingshot modem is stuffed. Some of the support is excellent, but others are crap.

Pros:

Yeah right, flamin useless.

Cons:

Kept on getting the run around to get them to book a Chorus Tech to come out on a day i would be at home. Had to wait 5 days to get the internet back on.

Am already with Slingshot (about 2 years) after getting away from Clear.net (vodafone) and have been reasonably satisfied. We have had Fibre (Enable) installed up our Lane ( 12 residences) just last week and making contact to check packages/options now that fibre is available. Have not been able to talk with anyone at Slingshot about options, so have made enquiries here.

After a few initial issue with install my 12 months with Slingshot have been pretty much trouble free. Main reason not staying with them is even when I told them I'd been offered a better offer they wouldn't match it.

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.
