Went to check out a laptop for a friend and found they are on slingshot BB in Nelson City and it's soooo slow Youtube buffers almost continuously.

What I want like to know what do others think of their speed compared to my Vodafone it's crap

They hadn't by chance reached their data cap and were throttled back to 64k?

One would have thought Slingsh|t had improved their services in the last year or two. Guess not

I ditched them about 2 years ago for their crappy speeds and service. Seemed once they won the NZ's Best Provider (or whatever it was) Award, things went downhill real fast

I think they have reached the maximum customer base that they can handle. I notice that I haven't seen a slingshot ad on TV or anywhere for a few years, so they are not really marketing for new customers.

Full bore ball valve (http://www.emersonvalve.com/ball-valve.html) is widely used throughout the world in harsh chemical and pharmaceutical plants, Utilising a full port design minimises pressure losses and increases flow capacities.This ball valve is a short pattern reduced bore valve to ASME B16.10 offering cost savings over full port valves including smaller actuation requirements.You've been a busy lil spammer I see. So what can you teach us about sonic screwdrivers? :illogical
