I'm with slingshot - Joined 5/8/2008.
Rung them today to confirm: and they say i am no longer under any term/contract. (Darn should i have got them to send me an email to confirm in writing? We shall see ...)
Rang telecom to get back onto their broadband. Took about 20 minutes altogether. Had to agree verbally to all their conditions and was recorded.
It was interesting for me because i didnt get a chance to choose my username and initial password. I have to wait till the CD is couriered to do this. And even then it may take till Monday. Hmm ... i remember in the past once the cabinet is connected - within 3.5 hours of calling actually!! i tried every hour - (or something like that) i can then quickly switch my modem settings to log onto slingshot and say bye bye to telecom (yup i was on telecom, then slingshot, now back to telecom). But without a username this time ... this could be interesting.
So waiting for the stuff to arrive ... 3 working days max it says (that's Monday! yeah as you may have guessed we've gone over the slingshot limit about 10 days ago) ... am hoping to get the stuff tomorrow or at least Friday and hoping the broadband would have already been activated when i got the CD. Fat hopes? We shall see.
Now can anyone advise me a better modem to get above 10MBps down/660Kbps up? This seems to be the max that my 1st gen DLink 604 can do.
