service is rubbish

Poor support for an ongoing poor throughput issue. Great when it works but a real struggle to get a stable connection. Groan
Fast when they have it right
Poor disconnected tier 2 support. *bashes head on brick wall

Ive been with Orcon for many years now, have been offered so many other upgrades along the way. I find the Broadband to be really good, customer service is very knowledgeable and helpful.
Our current plan is Unlimited and works great, we are on the VoIP service and i dont recommend it
Unlimited is great there are no extra charges and we can watch netflix as much as we like and surf the web etc
Excellent value for money
Support is good, speed is average
When power is out there is no phone line to make calls
Sometimes our line cuts out and we constantly have to reset the modem
orcon wont send out a replacement modem. But told us to go and buy a modem from Noel Leemings or somewhere like that.

Will not be recommending orcon as an ISP. I inherited the account midway through the contract and had to deal with the company's service centre at different times. The representatives didn't seem to be able to deviate from their standard 'company' responses in response to basic questions/ queries. Notes recorded on the account differed from what was actually discussed. Connection kept cutting out, but because of the fustrating service I didnt bother complaining and waited ...read more

Had fibre with Orcon since 2013, great on 100/50 plan, loved the 200/200 plan...but the 1Gb offering is a nightmare, zero support from the level 2 tech folk. Very poor. Beware! We have been without a phone for long periods, and are getting slow download speeds. Beware!!!
No support from the support team. No followup. Not happy!

Been with Orcon for about a year. Was fine, had a few DNS issues, but was easy to deal with. Contract ended and they switched us out to a new plan with the same speed and unlimited data, but it's unbearably unstable and they refuse to deal with it.
Plan included a decent VOIP phone, and for the most part, they were fine - until December 2016.
1. DNS issues. Their DNS servers are screwy.
2. Incredibly poor speeds during peak hours - only a few kbps. Orcon says it's totally fine and we should be happy with what we have. They refuse to fix it or release us from ...read more
