I have tried phoning slingshot a few time, but been shifted from pillar to post, and didn't get the answer I want,
I am looking at the vdsl coverage maps provided by chorus I think it was, and the coverage zone goes right through my house for the edge of the coverage.

Maybe I am at the fringe, but trying to work out if I can get it or not, only problem is, any time I search my address it brings my house up about 400 metres away from where it really is, possibly due to google maps having it wrong still. And possibly this is why slingshot say it's not available,

The neighbour who is joined on to me comes up in the correct place, but slingshot said they can't search that address as it might be on a different exchange arrggggh

Does anyone know if there is a more detailed vdsl coverage map, so I can do some investigations if it's worth looking into changing or not ?

Hi Steve,
Sounds odd. Want to ping me a PM with some details and we can look into it?
