Hi,

Does anyone know what sort of traffic shaping is implemented on the Slingshot 250GB + Homeline bundle.

I do a lot of http downloading, and need to have a fast connection...

I am currently on the 150GB plan with a homeline also... would the 250GB plan be be any different?

Thanks

I just bypass the traffic shaping with a NZ based VPN provider. AFAIK Slingshot barely shapes national traffic

Hi,

The same traffic prioritisation applies to all Slingshot plans.


1. VOIP

2. Gaming

3. Browsing

4. Streaming

5. Local traffic

6. File sharing, including Peer-to-Peer (P2P)

There is 0% difference between 150G plan and the 250G plan, the only difference is you pay slightly more for more data.
I have no issues with this plan, been downloading a bit via HTTP and SSH no problems at all almost like rates all the time 15/2.0 sync rate.
