Orcon scraps Fair Use policy on unlimited plans

Orcon today removed the Fair Use policy from its unlimited plans.

CEO Greg McAlister says the move signals the ISP’s intention to have a truly ‘all you can eat’ offering.

“We have been selling our unlimited plan for more than a year – it’s our biggest seller, and best plan. While we initially included a Fair Use policy, we have never used it, so the time is right to remove it and signal to people that they can really fill their boots online.”

McAlister says that some Orcon customers use up to 9TB of data a month – and he’s OK with that.

“Unlimited is unlimited – it’s what first world internet should look like.”

In October Orcon joined forces with Kim Dotcom, one of New Zealand’s most prolific internet users, to smash New Zealand’s restrictive data caps and fight the plight of third world Internet in New Zealand. Since then, the company has seen the demand for their uncapped plans soar.

Doesn't matter what you call it, the Orcon network currently has NO traffic shaping, not even on P2P.
