Asmodeus: No option to go naked may kill this for me. I also don't like 24 month contracts but I see why they did it.

Anyone know what their termination fees are like?

I think its $99 for one year contracts so might be $199?

Does anyone know if I should get the same line speed on this plan as I do with Orcon + (St Johns, Auckland)?

It was mentioned on the Slingshot forums that the termination fee will be $149.95

And yes, I have you a letter. I got two, one looks as if it was written by a human and the other looked like it was an auto response. They should be putting out some more details today, somewhere.

Does anyone know the answer to this? I know what the slingshot CS reps will say, whether it's true or not.

I think you will get similar speeds as I believe they share the same unbundled equipment and hence the same SNR margin. Telecom on the other sets a higher SNR so lower speed (but higher reliability in some cases).

Hi guys,

The plan will be available within an hour - we're just going through the final stages of the plan release.

Regards,
