I have just changed to Slingshot broadband and would like to express how happy I am with the initial service. I believe they have their own equipment in our exchange which probably would have something to do with what I am about to say. With all previous providers my line connection downstream and upstream rates would at the most been 8900 Kbps down and around 1040 Kbps up. I was switched over to Slingshot today and my line connection downstream and upstream rates are 11491Kbps down and 1179Kbps up. Even our ping on speedtest has improved. Its gone from at the best 31ms down to 11ms. Incidentally I am 1.9kms from our exchange. So once again thanks Slingshot I certainly agree with your phrase better network.
