“All You Can Eat” Is Back

Media Release

1 August, 2011


“All You Can Eat” Is Back


Slingshot has re-launched its popular “ALL YOU CAN EAT” broadband plan, with a number of new benefits.


The “ALL YOU CAN EAT” plan, which was first introduced in August 2010, gives customers unlimited data at a market-low price.


General Manager of Slingshot, Scott Page, says there is more and more demand for the rich and exciting content the internet provides. “Videos, games, social networking, maps, and other content on the internet can chew through large amounts of data very quickly, and can result in a large bill or a slowed broadband experience.”


“Affordable plans like “ALL YOU CAN EAT” mean our customers can make the most of technology advancements and the incredible content available. When we first introduced the plan our customers really responded to the price certainty the plan offers and showed clearly that many customers value download capacity over peak speed. Incredibly, several of our customers regularly download more than a Terabyte each month,” says Mr Page.


New customers can sign up for the “ALL YOU CAN EAT” plan for a year and instead of paying $80 per month will pay just $40 per month, half the usual price, for the first six months, on Slingshot’s current half price broadband promotion. Customers must also have their homeline with Slingshot in order to take up the “ALL YOU CAN EAT” offer.


The offer is available for a limited time to the first 5,000 new customers and ends on the 30 September 2011.


The plan now comes with a 12 month contract term. Customers to can switch to an alternative Slingshot plan if they wish at anytime without penalty.


The Slingshot “ALL YOU CAN EAT” broadband promotion coincides with Slingshot’s ‘Half Price Broadband’


It’s the broadband that never runs out.
