Slingshot offers two ADSL/VDSL broadband plans. Both plans feature maximum download and upload speeds. Meaning your internet speed will depend on several factors. These include your distance from the exchange, the condition of your copper wiring, noise on the copper line and line attenuation.
While Slingshot does offer an unlimited data plan, their cheaper plan for $74.95 per month has a data cap of 150GB. This in today’s world, would be enough data for say 2 to 3 people, but if you have a growing family or lots of flat mates that like to watch Netflix, your data would run out sooner than later. This capped data plan comes with a feature that automatically buys additional data when you run out. The cost for this extra data is $5 for 5GB.
Our verdict is to with the Unlimited plan. Or if you can, get fibre. It’s faster and cheaper. Note: there is a 6 month contract when you register with Slingshot’s ADSL/VDSL broadband. And a $250 early termination fee applies.
Slingshot does give new customers a router to use for the length of their plan. It will cost you $14.95 in postage. All Slingshot routers are rented and must be returned should you cancel your service. If it is not returned, you will be charged $100 to recover the cost of the device.
