Worst fucking experience ever, speed issues and lack of fluent english speaking support team, tech dept that are not qualified techs that re-site scripted excuses from chorus manifest, this stretches to all the 2 vocus internet brands (Orcon, Slingshot) vocus is more focus on $$$ with all its vocus brands (Orcon, Slingshot, Flip, 2Talk and Switch Utilities) than it is about customers

Pros:

Best Pro for this was the day I left.
No dont use them, sucker low prices advertisement is a gimic

Cons:

Customer service is a complete joke
waiting long hours
The broken english and unqualified tech support or the tech support that located in India/Philippians/Malayasia that you can never understand

I haven't had many issues and if I have they have been very helpful in working them out.

I was with Slingshot for about 15 months on a capped plan.

Pros:

The broadband worked well up until I exceeded the capped amount considerably, and had more users in my household. Then it went offline, during peak periods. Also loading speed was too slow.

Cons:

Slingshot didn't alert me to the excessive amount I had used above the capped allowance. Although not actually obligated to do so, I think that a bill of over $200 for a month should have resulted in a suggestion from them that there was a more suitable plan available. They were quite helpful when I contacted them, but failed to offer a comparable deal to that of a competitor so I changed providers. ...read more

I switched but ended up signing up onto the wrong provider as was going for 4 months half price neon and prezzy card deal anf cause of the orange divider lines thought that was slingshot and hit the wrong provider now stuck with that cause they have a $200 cancelation few

Pros:

pretty good really fast quick relatively easy except which plan is for which provider should be boxed inside the orange lines together not above the orange line seperating the plans from there actually providers and boxing them in with the provider above them

Cons:

the plans being seperated from the actual provider they belong with by the orange line bit misleading otherwise primo

Good customer service and monthly fee. That's why I decided to stay with Slingshot for my next Fiber broadband.

Slingshot gives us what we need at a price we can afford. They include a landline connection and discounted mobile prepay.

Pros:

It is difficult to find out how much data and minutes remain on the mobile plan as there are no dates when either is used. Sometimes all of the data is used and I can't work out when or why.

Cons:

Slingshot is very helpful when they finally answer the phone!
