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.

Signed up, advised I was using my own modem, connected and can't, asked for SIP password, advised they don't give that. Why not tell me that when I said I was using my OWN modem one of the 3 times I called?
Lack of customer service. Will be moving ISP after 1 day, that's a new record

I moved to orcon vdsl plan recently. The price offered is very competitive and there are no installation charge.
prompt fault resolution and customer care service is good.
1. When i told that vdsl didn't work at my home - 1st surprise came: They mentioned if fault is in your home line, they will charge $140, wow - because I didn't read their t&c carefully. Other providers atleast mention clearly that 30-40$ are installation charges. Then they told if I buy their wiring insurance, then I do't need to pay $140 if fault is at home line. So I am now paying wiring insurance as well per month. What a trap!!!

2. I have been using it very recently and every single day, i need to restart my modem and/or turn on/off wifi in PC in order for it to work. Suddenly all websites start showing dns not found. I never had such issues with past internet service providers.

I would change but I must confess that the thought of setting up another modem doesn't appeal. But Orcon has been a disappointment.
The Manila staff are better informed than their Kiwi counterparts were.

Landline & national calls are thrown in.

Frequent outages & lost connections-FAR too frequent !!!


Wifi doesn't work.

Orcon is not very fast.
