    ADSL broadband speed report September 2017

    We all know how confusing it is that ISPs advertise the same speeds... but are their speeds actually the same?  According to the latest ADSL Truenet.nz report, the speed differences for NZ websites continue to show a wide spread on ADSL providers.

Terrible service. Internet goes down about once per day and landline goes down every month or so. Customer service not at all interested in fixing it.

Horrible internet always picks when it wants to work, for 90 dollars a month not worth it at all. When I contact orcon they tell me to run a few tests sorry isn’t having working internet what I’m paying orcon for? I feel like I shouldn’t have to run tests to get our internet working, should be working all the time for that price.

Pros:

Occasionally working internet....

Cons:

Over priced, not reliable internet.

Modem arrived and I installed it properly. Had to call Orcon twice before they arranged for a delivery of a new modem. The new delivery will take up to 5 days so I have been left without internet for a week. When I asked about compensation I received no reply. Definitely do not recommend them. Go with slingshot.

Pros:

Cheapish - Same price as slingshot, vodafone etc

Cons:

UNRELIABLE
Will not Compensate for bad service/ interruptions to service.

Orcon provide me with add-ons for my landline that suit - for a small fee each month I get unlimited national calling and unlimited calls to the places overseas that I call reasonably regularly - the UK, Australia and the USA. Initially, when we signed up for /fibre, we got drop-outs off and on but we haven't had a drop out for so long that I can't remember the last time.

I would like to be able to compare our provider with others for both price and service.
Would like to know if recent loss of service which have been rectified by Chorus at various street pillars is the result of sabotage/sales effort of incompetence on Sparks part. as doesn't seem to be Orcon that has the problenm as Spark have fixed it
Would also like to know how long their free fibre connection offers are going to last. i thought that as more people went onto fibre that the copper service would improve but to date the reverse seems to be the case. ...read more

Pros:

Have been helpful and seemed like a good deal for a good number of years

Cons:

None really, Have ahd several visits from Vodaphone and Spark trying to sell us fibre connection but to date they are not providing a competitive deal.

Absolutely fabulous service from Orcon. 24hours from application to service (ONT and modem already in place). There were issues with finding the correct address but constant communication - without a pre-scripted email - ensured these were resolved rapidly. If customer service is the mark of success, then Orcon have nailed it!

Didn't know I am just getting a ADSL line instead of fibre. Have always thought ADSL is only temporary until Fibre is connected. Should have mentioned clearly before sign up.
