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.

Aghast. Third parties let this provider down. Delivery of modem - terrible. Chorus connected the wrong house.
Slow jittery service. Streaming stutters. No where near the down of 100mps more like 44mps. Didnt connect on the due date - connected 5 days after. Threatened with a fee if a tech came out. Only to discover Chorus had set up the wrong house. Fibre went down - their own site says all systems running. Had to phone again to be told it was done. ...read more

Great, very happy, I had a few questions and they were able to help me right away. Easy to set up, they do it all for you! I applied Wednesday and will be connected on Monday, less than a week! Thanks, will surely recommend
Easy, fast connection
I would like to have fibre but will have to wait to get consent from other property tenants. Nothing of which they can control really

After only 1 day of normal work, the Internet connection was lost. It was restored only after 3 days of waiting! It was agreed that first 3 months will be free. But after 1.5 weeks of service I received a bill for $333!!! Contacted their bill department ΓÇô no response at all during 24 hours.
