Umm okay?

I really cannot be bothered, unless you can tell me why? Do you have an opinion on something?
I am not trying to troll you.... but seriously is there a reason for me/us to look?

I saw a bit of it but I *think* without watching the video again it was about their Telemarketers calling some of their customers to upsell and the telemarketers not taking no for an answer

I would vote for Slingshot to win Best ISP of the year :)

I have had my fair share of issue with them, but in general they are fine, and cheap which is what I like. (you get what you pay for)

They are up to their old tricks transferring peoples phone acconts without their permission.
see my other post in this forum and beware of them..
They will certainly not get any Biz from me and anyone I talk to from now on.
Why don't they learn, Unhappy ripped off people tell hundreds of people, Happy people tell a few !
