Morning all,

I was wondering if anyone can help me. I have been using Slingshot since I arrived in NZ 5 years ago. I have always been pretty happy with the download speeds I get on a FS/FS plan, usually around 5-6mb, but the upload speeds are around 0.6mb. I remember once, I think it was a blue moon night, getting just under 1mb.
My question is, is that normal? I'm sure by paying for a FS/FS I should be getting a bit faster than that...... If that's normal, I might drop down a plan and save myself a bit of money.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There was an issue in Mt Albert and Blockhouse Bay customers with slow uploads.
