Orcon knows its stuff when it comes to internet. The company was the first to unbundle the local loop, the first to launch a mass-market plug and play VoIP device, and the first to get Kiwis hooked up to ultra-fast broadband.

Orcon offer gigabit residential plans, bringing a new level of broadband speeds to Kiwi consumers, along with ADSL, VDSL and Fibre with or without homeline services dependant on what is available at your broadband region. All of Orcons internet plans offer unlimited data.

Useless when we first arranged it - we had to contact Chorus to sort out the fibre connection. Since then the signal has been variable at best and sometimes the download speed is worse than the old copper. And Orcon don't want to know.

Pros:

Unlimited for $99 with a landline

Cons:

Poor strength and initially problems with our house alarm

Price went up twice in the year we were with Orocn.Seems they just hike it annually.Took 1 month to get connection even though moving date and given time frame for connection. Faulty modem after 10 months-endless ph calls for support before they sent me a replacement.Had to demand it sorted before they did.stressful!then they tell me they have no record of the one i sent back and will maybe charge me for that when i ended contract.would not recommend Orcon at all.

Pros:

they provide a courier bag to return their modem

Cons:

Unlimited-so very slow-no good from 9-evening. Had to go on early hours of morning or late at night.Used my ph data instead to do banking.

Normally a good fast and reasonably reliable connection

Pros:

Hardly ever slows down

Cons:

If you need support FORGET IT!! The left hand does not know what the right is doing.

After a 15 minute conversation with support and the status of my "fault". I am told that it would be left open so that we can communicate further and try and isolate the problem. The next day I get a call telling me that as I had not been in touch with them again re this fault they would close it that day!!!! I have NEVER been able to talk to anyone who is technically competent! ...read more

Orcon were unable to repair fiber "fault". Sent multiple communications stating issue ressolved -when it wasn't. "Fault" resolved by switching provider.
Terriblely unreliable naked broadband phone. Which wasn't working at least 25% of the time. A huge waste of money.

Pros:

Call centre phone waiting time not too bad. Usually less than 10 mins.

Cons:

Waste of money.
Unreliable.
Multiple exit fees despite Orcon's inability to supply the service we paid for.

Poor disconnected tier 2 support. *bashes head on brick wall
