Telecom are putting up their costs to me for my home phone line.

I currently have Slingshot broadband (Advanced High-Speed 15GB) and tolls.

I enquired with Slingshot as to their costs for me to have a phone line with them in addition to other services I already have. I was surprised to find that the extra cost would still be more than the new Telecom fees!

Seems rather odd?

No response from the Slingshot crew.
Meaning you ARE more expensive than Telecom, even though I'm already on Slingshot internet and tolls.
Surprising.

I'll have a look at other ISPs for cheaper bundles then.

Hi,

Homeline price doesnt change,

If you have BB with us then add Homeline the cost of BB will drop by $5 per month,
If you add Tolls as well it will drop by another $5 per month

i.e a customer with Homeline, Tolls and Broadband will get a $10 per month discount on there Broadband plan.

Thanks,
Joe.

Thanks Joe,

I did email SS with my existing situation re tolls and broadband, the reply made no mention of further broadband discount. I should email them back then do you think?
