Orcon's aim is to bring Best Quality Internet to Kiwis. They want to offer the world's smoothest broadband experience in New Zealand.

Orcon knows innovation is a key to this so constantly push the limits to deliver the newest and greatest solutions to Kiwis. They were first to unbundle the local loop, been ahead of others with Ultra-Fast Broadband and let New Zealanders do more with their unlimited broadband.

They are always fighting to do better and they are proud of their ability to innovate. Their team is filled with amazing people who are knowledgeable and helpful and, basically, just love the Internet. They are small enough company to care and big enough to make a difference.

Orcon is all about the internet and their network is optimised for fibre. That means tonnes of data, plenty of bandwidth, smart data caching technology, and low lag time. They love fast fibre, and that is why they would not dream of doing anything to slow you down like throttling or traffic managing.

They have scrapped data caps and all the plans are now unlimited. They just do not make sense in a world of fibre and 4K Netflix. They want to offer New Zealanders the best broadband possible – and innovation is the way they drive this.

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 their internet plans offer unlimited data.

Been using Orcon for over 9 years and been a great experience. Every time I think it's time to upgrade, Orcon offered a better than market deal. Only had a handful of issues over the years, most of which were not Orcon's fault and otheriwse dealt with by good customer support. Transition to Fibre was smooth.

Orcon doesn't offer the bells and whistles like others, but at least you pay straight for solid & reliable Internet. Currently getting as advertised 100mbps down & 20mbps up.

Pretty rubbish experience overall. Unreliable, and support staff will hang up on you most of the time. If they don't they'll insist on charging you to fault find, and blame you even when it's on their end.
An alright connection when it actually works. This happens for approximately 2hrs a day.
Useless the rest of the time, and in every possible way. If you complain, your connection mysteriously goes offline for 24hrs.

Read the terms and conditions! This is not a standard 12 month contract!
Ensure you have a set contract start and end date. Be prepared for the 30 day notice to cancel a set term contract.
Have the patience to deal with incompetent customer support.
Cheapest monthly rate, if they apply the discount correctly.
Speed is average.
Orcon customer service took 3.5 weeks to get a modem to us, and gave a mighty first bill. This took many persuasive emails to get them to break down the billing and show them they had billed us wrong.
This billing issue was completely forgotten at the end of the year and Orcon decided to make end of contract terms based on the incorrect first billing details.
Customer support will also avoid talking to you on the phone!
