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.

Horrible experience. Requested to connect me to Orcon Fibre. After a week of waiting was contacted by Fibre installation team, who came over to make a pre installation check, approve works with me and neighbors and said me to wait (today is one month of waiting). After another week and calls to Orcon from my side, Orcon finally sent me a modem and connected to ADSL while I am waiting for a Fibre and already charged me for two months of using, though they promised to provide a 3 months free internet. Everything is extremely slow - their services as well as ADSL speed - can hardly play a youtube video and even open Orcon website. ...read more
Hidden charges. Internet speed. Price. Service.

We were on the Unlimited Naked ADSL plan. Internet access was quite patchy and unreliable, cutting off randomly quite frequently. Not sure if this had much to do with Orcon or the ADSL cables near our property, but we are in quite a reasonably affluent, built-up area. Their billing site was easy-to-use and bills usually came through on time. Didn't have the best experience when cancelling our internet; they refused to be clear about what date our internet would actually stop being supplied. It took 4 emails from them before I got a clear response of "your internet will stop being supplied on the [date]". ...read more
Easy-to-use website. Easy, reliable billing. Well-priced. Lots of options.
Not the best customer service. Internet was not at all reliable throughout the 14 months we were with them. Ended up switching.

Coming to the end of my 12 month contract and asked if they could transfer to the new house I am moving to. Yes... but only if I renewed for another 12 months!!

I been with Orcon for a while now (I think about five years) and found them to be very good. Most of their call centre staff appear to be outside New Zealand, but they are friendly efficient and competent.
Very speedy response to enquiries. I don't think I've ever spent more than a couple of minutes waiting for my call to be answered. The call centre staff are also very well trained.
I can't really think of anything.
