Was a customer for over 2 years never missing payment. They deleted our email and didn't tell us. It took 7 attempts contacting by phone, email and support tockets over a 6 week period to get them to accept it was deleted and get it turned back on. It took me over 6 hours of my time to get a simple explanation and action by Orcon to fix the issue. To top it off our monthly bill was due and I told them I wasn't paying it till I got answers, they have not provided any answers so they have lost our custom. Their quality of representatives is disgusting and unable to understand simple English. Their policy to not help and not value existing customers is even more appalling. Shame on Orcon for there total disregard of customers they should be looking after rather than pushing away.

Pros:

None

Cons:

The CEO's promises made in the New Zealand Herald and on Orcon website state they are the best service provider to give its customers the best services and advanced technology. By deleting their clients services without notification and refusals to fix the issues is an extremely far cry from these promises. Appears this talk is nothing more than untrue banter passed off as publicity. ...read more

Worst ISP ive ever dealt with to date!!! If you want endless headaches and problems, sign up with Orcon!

Pros:

None

Cons:

Didnt connect me up within 7-10 working days, it took over a month to set me up with ADSL when I was paying for VDSL.
Unstable internet connection for the first month.
No perks of joining VDSL plans.
No solutions from customer service team. And no accountability for poor service. One person tells you one thing another tells you something else.
Billed me cancellation and a number of other charges when I had just joined.
They dont tell you when you sign up that you have to return the modem upon cancellation.
One problem after another..

Speed was the main concern we have to switch over to the new service provider and again we wanted to try the fibre connection as the current one was DSL not sure if it was A or V but whichever it was speed was quite unacceptable with the amount we were paying monthly.

Pros:

Haven't used the other features so cannot comment on the pros

Cons:

Speed as I mentioned earlier was the main hurdle for us. As an internet subscriber all you wanted is speed and not lose connection in between.

I actively discourage people ever joining Orcon, I have never liked a retailer less.

Pros:

none

Cons:

Support/ customer service is useless or non existent, service is unreliable and patchy at best. Provided routers are seriously lacking and their infrastructure is abysmal.

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.
