igloologoIgloo is no doubt looking to boost its subscriber base by teaming up with Slingshot to offer pay TV, broadband and home line packages.  This could be due to their need to find a good reason to buy their product after we revealed all the reasons why you shouldn’t.

It wasn’t perfectly scheduled, but we were just happy to get together as soon as we could.”
