We are interviewing Slingshot, one of the broadband providers that we have on glimp. We find out more about their values, what makes them different & their services. We hope you enjoy!
Since 1996, Slingshot has been on a mission to challenge the telco industry and fight to give Kiwi families better value internet, backed by awesome service. We know how important it is to stay connected online, but we also know getting there can be a little confusing, frustrating, and often more trouble than it needs to be.
Like our customers, Slingshot loves all the good things in life – things like brilliant broadband, decent prices, and good old-fashioned service. We like to think of ourselves as the shining light of simplicity and service and we’ve worked hard to make Slingshot simple, affordable and stress-free – because we know our customers have more important things to spend their time on than fiddling round with their internet. What’s more, we’ve got a dedicated team of helpers, based right here on home soil.
At Slingshot we know that the web has become the lifeblood of the home and that families need it more than ever. But we also know things have got pretty confusing out there.
Our customers are busy families who want to stay connected. They like a stress-free life but they’ve got kids who all want to be online at the same time, which can quickly become a drama zone. In fact, the average number of connected devices per household has tripled in the past three years alone, to nine. So, a great product is important – but equally so is the service and support.
We’re committed to making broadband suitable for the whole household – whether they’re madly streaming TV shows, gaming up a storm, or just hammering TradeMe.
We offer a range of broadband options with ADSL, VDSL and super speedy fibre.
Slingshot extras include:
The latest: we’ve recently launched a new product called Family Filter.
Following a recent survey, we found that three quarters of Kiwi parents are concerned their children may have access to online pornography, yet fewer than a third use online parental controls. To help put parents’ minds at ease, we introduced an easy online tool that blocks the darker corners of the web and helps protect Kiwi kids.
With the simple switch of a button, Family Filter gives the control back to parents by blocking access at a network level, and encompassing all devices connected to the home Wi-Fi.
About Family Filter:
Nationwide – check our address checker for availability.
We like to think that we truly put ourselves in the customers’ shoes. We don’t screw the customer and we try to make things as easy as possible.
We genuinely want to help. We’re challengers and disruptors – we like to stay one step ahead, without the constraints of being a bigger corporate.
We hope that you enjoyed our interview with Slingshot and there are more to come. Stay tuned! If you would like to compare broadband plans, just go to glimp.co.nz.

I’ve just had a great experience with Kurt from glimp compare. He helped me through the process from the time I clicked onto the website, via the chat function. Long story short I have signed up to a new power and broadband provider with significant cost savings. There was no pressure at any stage, just respectful guidance and facilitation to initiate the new supply.
Easiest service to use and knowledgeable and experienced staff. Made switching power and broadband stress free! Thanks Jamie S, they answered all my questions I had about starting a new connection for broadband and power - even better than calling Slingshot direct as I got 3 months free internet and credit for using my own modem :)
Virtually instant contact after filling out online form. Great rep - friendly and informative, great deal made for cheaper power, overall so far so good 😁
Used Glimp to get a better deal on gas/power Jamie S made things very easy and was super helpful. Would definitely recommend
