Overall pretty good experience.

Pros:

No major issues once up and running, helpful on the phone.

Cons:

Sent incorrect type of modem initially, quickly sent correct one but still delays setting up. Dropped out at busy times.

English not always a first language with support staff so communication not always clear but seem technically competent. Maybe a crash course in Kiwi-isms could be developed

Pros:

Cheap, fast (enough for browsing / video, no idea about gaming)

Cons:

Few teething issues with setup, particuarly regarding the VOIP line

Periodically is slowed down. By comparison with my overseas experience, so-called Ultra Fast does not even come close to what I have experienced.

Pros:

Good after-sales service, and good attention to issues.

Cons:

Intermittent speed, and does met my expectations os "Ultra fast".

Signed up to get fibre installed through them and noticed no difference to our internet speed. Had lots of issues with internet not working properly.

Cons:

They were reasonably organised about getting it installed for us promptly.

I haven't started using it yet, but the offer (feature and value) looked most attracted as compared to rest of the services. It will be installed on 30th Nov so I'll be able to tell about speed and reliability afterwards. Support seems fine for now.

Pros:

Low price
Good value for money

Cons:

No Fibre available in area yet

We have been with slingshot for almost 3 years. It was easy to setup and customer service was great. There have been no major issues regarding the internet so far. I would recommend slingshot if you want a reliable connection.

Pros:

Great customer service
Good internet speed (VDSL)
Easy setup

Cons:

Plans are a bit expensive compared to some service providers such as Skinny.
