I'm looking at moving from 2 degrees to slingshot for my mobile provider as I live in the country and 2 degrees is very inconsistent.  I test the coverage with a temporary Spark sim and even though I only got 1 bar on my S7edge I had continuous coverage and even 4G mobile data!


Slingshot use the Spark network, so I'm just wondering if they can offer the full services and benefits of that network?

Hi there,


We use the Spark network (which is 4G), so if you are in a 4G capable area and have a 4G capable phone, it will operate as per Spark.


Drop us a line if you have any other questions :)

That's all I needed to hear :) I am aware when 'roaming' my 2degrees connection on Vodafone the 4G options is not there, so just wanted to check the same wasn't true in this scenario.




Thanks for the fast and professional reply.
