Upgraded from the Genius plan and have had constant outages on our Ethernet connection. Had Geeks on Wheels in for support as this was insufficient through Orcon. They conveyed that the modem was low spec and prone to drop outs. They dont track client comments as they constantly ask the same questions when giving advice.

Pros:

Hard to see at this stage.

Cons:

Bad customer support and poor communications. Modem (Ethernet) drops out regularly.

The issue with Orcon is that when something goes wrong, their Help Desk (until very recently) was in the Philippines and the accent made understanding really difficult. Add to that, the American-style way of telling callers what they are doing at every step of the process instead of just getting on with it and not wasting our time.
We had excellent service from Orcon when our new fibre was installed and we couldn't get wi-fi throughout the new house but I had to make many visits to their HO in Takapuna and complain loudly to get that help. ...read more

Pros:

I don't often have a problem with their reliability these days and they finally seem to have increased their Help Desk staff numbers.

Cons:

Charges are high until a better deal is offered by a competitor - then they want to do a deal to keep us with them. They have other ISPs within the Vocus Group that offer the same as Orcon at lower rates but they don't think to reduce Orcon customer rates at the same time.
They attract and reward new customers but ignore those who have been loyal customers for years.

This company advertises 3 months fre vdsl till fibre is connected. All for $79. To my surprise I received a bill for $94 within a week. Took me 11/2 hours to get this corrected. Not a great start. My vdsl is also slower compared to my previous adsl. Orcon tells me they can't do anything to fix this.

Pros:

There are none so far

Cons:

No one seems to care about anything

Aghast. Third parties let this provider down. Delivery of modem - terrible. Chorus connected the wrong house.

Cons:

Slow jittery service. Streaming stutters. No where near the down of 100mps more like 44mps. Didnt connect on the due date - connected 5 days after. Threatened with a fee if a tech came out. Only to discover Chorus had set up the wrong house. Fibre went down - their own site says all systems running. Had to phone again to be told it was done. ...read more

I would like to have fibre but will have to wait to get consent from other property tenants. Nothing of which they can control really

After only 1 day of normal work, the Internet connection was lost. It was restored only after 3 days of waiting! It was agreed that first 3 months will be free. But after 1.5 weeks of service I received a bill for $333!!! Contacted their bill department – no response at all during 24 hours.
