Bit strange they say it is going to be released end of last week and then we hear nothing.

Pretty sure I will go to vodafone with naked dsl. Since I am on plan I can get 120gb for $95 a month and keep my vfx with worldexchange for $11.50 a month. Also get free mysky with vodafone so that saves me another $15 a month.

apologies team - we received some great feedback from customers, and from people on geekzone, so we're going to incorporate some of this into the new plans.

More information cob today

sapage: New naked plans should be end of this week. 


Nobody said the new plans will be out at the end of the week, but SAPAGE should have added 'probably next week'.

Here you go. Lets keep this simple:
Slingshot will be launching an UNLIMITED Naked Broadband plan this week @ $90 / month.
(note: a standard surcharge will apply in rural exchanges)
There will be limited 'seats' available on this plan, due to provisioning capacity and we expect the offer will close early December. 
'No contract term' will be available (or 12 month contract with a new modem)

Customers will be able to order the product online from later this week. In the meantime 'Seats' can be reserved by emailing [email protected]

Fantastic, this is exactly what I've wanted ever since joining Slingshot 18 months ago. Email sent. :)

Don't use the internet enough to warrant an unlimited plan, was hoping for a capped plan for cheaper.

RedJalapeno: Don't use the internet enough to warrant an unlimited plan, was hoping for a capped plan for cheaper.


Yeah I agree,  Slingshot have missed the boat here.  50gb is enough for me, so either way (naked or landline) I pay $90.
That really does make Vodafone the best option. 60gb for $65 and a $15 a monthcheaper sky bill.

Well cause I can be i'm gonna be lazy and ask here instead of going to the website.

Does reserving a place guarantee it???

Is this a binding commtiment to join once they're officially up and running with this plan???

What sort of throttling will we see with this and what for as in will torrents be throttled (please bear in mind torrenting is not illegal it's just a popular format often used for illegal purposes of which I do not condone at all) and or FTP transfers???

Why such a short cut off as in early december???

You mentioned possible incentives (or the like) for existing Naked customers what are they and are they for SS Naked customers or those transferring as well???

Will your naked plan include your voip service or is that a added extra (if so how much)???

The offer looks really good but I'd need answers to those before I would consider dropping WXC. Simply as they have been good to me, provide great customer service and speeds I can rely on to always work for streaming and gaming which is very important to me and my household.
