Looking at Slingshot's full WIMAX plan, unlimited bandwidth etc with phone. $100/month.

Wondering about reliability and performance.

What is latency like - what pings could be expected on NZ game servers for instance?

What actual download speeds do you really attain?

Also, what's the deal with the wireless phones supplied with the joining fee. Are they decent?

And the router that's required for multiple computers, any comments?

I have the same question, also a $150 joining fee and $150 for a router , (multiple PCs) certainly limits the appeal esp. when xtra is still offering free install

"Thank you for using Slingshot's Online Help.

Unfortunately we do not have the capacity to sign up any new Max Wirless customers so we do not have any installation promotions at this point."
