I've recently got my parents a TVPad but they don't have the internet

Looking at signing them up to Slingshot's $81 Better Network plan however on their website it says I have to sign up for a minimum of 12 months. Which is fairly common but there's no freebie to lock one in - i.e. no modem, no free two months or anything.

I do get a free wireless modem plus another 200GB if I sign up for their $69 20GB plan

Does anyone know if I sign my folks up for that whether I can upgrade plans at any time (i.e. to the $81 plan after say 2 months???)

Also - is their refer a friend offer still on?

I'm pretty sure you do get a free modem/router on their $81 plan.

Details here: https://www.slingshot.co.nz/homeline-and-broadband/broadband-setup-guide/

Their website seems to be going undergoing some major changes so a number of pages come up with an error, but did find a cached page, dated 17 August 2012, about the friend referral program. May best to call them tomorrow.

Hi,

You can have a free 1 port (non wireless) modem on the 12 month generic contract as a standard offer.

You can change plan once per month to and from any plan (except Naked broadband).

Hope this helps,

Ben
