I've just a call from Slingshot who are (that is? who is?) my ISP. They're upgrading me to their 50GB/$40 plan, I'm currently 15GB/$40, so all good on that front.

I'm happy enough with Slingshot, when things go wrong, which is rare, they are pretty hard to contact though, and do not respond to emails sent via their website.

The caller also offered to swap my home phone line from telecom to Slingshot, saving $7 per month. I can't see a reason not to, but thought I'd offer myself up to the vast internet knowledgebase, and ask whether there's any cons to swapping to Slingshot for the phone line.

I have one and like it, if your getting the bundle then the 20 smart phone features are great.
I like the number black and the ability to see who last caller was and to block unknown callers.

It's a good value.

Not really sure what I would get yet! They're calling back Monday.

What does "I like the number black" mean?

Thanks for the opinion.

Chris - I believe my number will not change, so shouldn't have a problem with my listing.

There is an old saying "If it aint broke, then don't fix it"  For a $7 saving per month, probably not worth it.

Sorry Black-list - you can enter numbers into a list that will not ring ya phone.
Brain was working faster than fingers and forgot to type list :o oopse.
$7 * 12 = $84 which is a nice to have figure.

Well the idiots called back. Turns out they weren't telling the whole truth. They hadn't included Caller ID and Call Minder in their price, so it runs out it was going to cost me MORE than what I pay now. Money Mouth

So I didn't take them up on their very kind offer. Tongue Out
