Leave a review of Orcon


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 support and clearly the support staff did not know what they were doing . Speeds erratic and fault proved to be in network but still no support to fix problem
Discount when connecting
Shocking support and technical support staff didn't know how to fix problem even though they finally accepted there was a problem

Worst customer service.... Emailed when initially signing up to tell them I already had fibre installed and had an ont on site. Did not listen and insisted that a technician had to come out to the property. After two weeks of emails and calls and messing around all the while I had no internet, finally got them to contact chorus for remote activation (what I had requested from the start). Then they charge me from when I initially signed up not when my internet was active.

Unreliable internet service very poor signal especially in the evening and weekend always there is interruption even though i was on their high speed internet which is called gigatanic 950/500 Mega Byte and I called their technical support more than eight times with no improvement and I had no choice other than cancelling the contract and pay $250 early termination fees and move to Stuf fiber provider which is much better than Orcon.The other issue is they don't have contact number to discuss if you have any bill issue. I don't recommend Orcon to anyone it's very frustrating to sign a contract then you find out the service is very poor and you are stucked with the contract or you have to pay $250 to move on to a better proider. more

This company is a night mare to deal with. Not connected on time, then connected to the wrong house. Poor speeds, stutters and drop outs - this is fibre. Won't refund because they have overcharged unless you make contact with them, - which is clearly theft, and then their process is according to them secure but it clearly isnt.
Value, email tag - is their best feature
