Orcon does it again "I will call you back at 5pm to get more information from you so we can get your fibre connection sorted" No call back this the third time they have done this and on the call when i rung them they told me to register through there website for fibre which i did 3 months ago and they had no record of me registering or any previous calls to them.

seriously orcon chimps could run your call centre better they even went into space

Chrisbexsta:
freitasm: Telecom has not announced their plans yet. Would you want a 50% discount of an unknown price to sign up of a promise of a door-to-door sales person? That sounds foolish to do...


I know but hey if orcon cant get there stuff sorted they are going to lose customers and I guarantee i am not the only person who is having fun with them


same here, didnt return my call, I signed up with another isp.

it's a brand new thing, you can't expect everyone to get everything right all the time, even on DSL... just chill out!

Yeah but this one comes under basic customer service man I work in retail and have worked in a call centre previously if you say you will ca a customer back call them back not ditch them in the gutter. Because at the end of the day customers are the ones that help company's make money. So customer service for any business should always be number 1 no customers equals no business.

Chrisbexsta: 

I have been offered a free connection with the same pricing and deal as orcon through another provider door knocking. So do I ditch orcon because they have dropped the ball which is what I am considering as I wanted to have five installed by the 13th November as I am going to Auckland and want to access my computer remotely.


As said by others, there is your answer. And by no means do you need fibre for remote desktop. Might be a little laggy on ADSL but still will work pretty well. Or just set up a VPN server and some network folders.
