I managed to download  two 1GB files from a seedbox at around 150KB/s via HTTP protocol using download manager. After completing these downloads i started another download and the speed from my seedbox has now been reduced to 15KB/s. I am sure Slingshot are monitoring websites where people are downloading large files and putting them on some kind of blacklist. Everything about this plan is suspicious. At least on Big Time you were always guaranteed 180KB/s no matter the time or how much you downloaded. Now 15KB/s doesn't even qualify as broadband does it, if things don't improve i will have to lodge a complaint.

I signed up on the 21st, still not connected. I don't place all the blame on Slingshot, I'm transferring from Worldnet, and Slingshot had never heard of them before I tried to transfer. My only complaint is that every step forward has been me calling them and asking what's happening, rather than them contacting me whenever they've hit a problem that needs my involvement.
