Slingshot Fibre connects Kiwis to Ultra-Fast Broadband
Slingshot is once again leading the telco industry as one of the first providers in New Zealand to connect customers to the new Ultra-Fast Broadband (UFB) network.
Slingshot already offers its customers some of the biggest broadband data plans in the country, and is strengthening its offering with UFB internet speeds up to 10 times faster than that of traditional copper lines.
Slingshot’s Chief Executive, Mark Callander, says that their commitment to providing high speed broadband to New Zealanders will forever change the way we use the internet.
“We believe that high speed internet is a game changer in terms of the way we use the internet and the opportunities it opens up in both the personal and commercial space.
For this reason, Slingshot will continue to invest heavily in the UFB network and the future of New Zealand’s broadband services. We want our customers to enjoy the benefits of high speed fibre without worrying about the cost.”
Slingshot fibre is exceedingly fast, delivering speeds up to 100Mbps. The new fibre plans, which come with a homeline and broadband, also include a number of freebies, from free voicemail, call waiting, to a do-not-disturb function.
Another New Zealand first being unveiled as part of the introduction to UFB is Slingshot’s new data rollover feature, which sees any unused data each month rolled over into the next – ensuring all Slingshot customers get every cent of value out of their internet package.
Callander is excited about the possibilities that UFB is bringing all New Zealanders.
“Fibre at this speed changes your entire experience on the internet. Whether you’re sharing holiday videos and photos with family, video calling friends overseas or streaming online TV and movies, it all becomes instantaneous. It is the next progression of connectivity in this country and as we begin to move forward into faster speeds and bigger data caps it can only be a good thing.”
“It’s an exciting time. Our first fibre customer is now connected and up and running with great speeds and we will be connecting with all of our customers to keep them up to date on when Fibre will be landing in their neighbourhood and how they can get started.” concludes Callander

*Customers on TURBO plans can expect 3-4 times faster experience at peak times when downloading content from international web sites when compared to non-TURBO plans (which are still very fast). Peak usage times are typically in the evenings from 6pm-10pm. All TURBO plans have higher throughput for downloading from international web sites to ensure a more consistent and better experience at all times of the day. If this is important to you, we recommend you select a TURBO plan.
