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.

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 isnΓÇÖt having working internet what IΓÇÖm paying orcon for? I feel like I shouldnΓÇÖt have to run tests to get our internet working, should be working all the time for that price.
Occasionally working internet....
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.
Cheapish - Same price as slingshot, vodafone etc
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
Have been helpful and seemed like a good deal for a good number of years
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.
