Looking at switching to slingshot ADSL from farmside, interested in peoples recent experiences with slingshot. I know that some years ago people were having bad experiences and wonder if things had got better.


Anyone know of new connection promos for adsl or voucher codes.

DO they use CG-NAT and can you get a static IP if you need one?


I do like the idea of Rollover data.


I am not a fan of unlimited as we rarely go over 100GB, we have only gone over once in 10 years and that is when we got netflix, we might use more when UFB is available.



I know enough to be dangerous

I don't believe they do CG-NAT. I'm certainly not CG-NAT


Although my IP address is not static, I have had the same IP address for at least 8 months now.

I can answer this, no CGNAT and I have static IP and its $10 per month. IP address by default are "sticky" but not static.

Are you using store and forward email services? If so, what is the cost and have you encountered any limitations when sending?
