Orcon announces new always-on internet service for Small Business

If the internet’s down, so is productivity. But with the introduction of a new fully-self-contained service from Orcon, small businesses can be practically assured of always-on connectivity.


This is thanks to the combination of a wired connection which automatically switches to 4G should the primary link go down. Best of all, the service is available for just $89.95 per month.


“New Zealand is a nation of small businesses. We’re also a nation which loves its connectivity and we use more online services than most other places in the world to run our companies,” says Taryn Hamilton, General Manager at Vocus Group New Zealand, which operates Orcon. “We’ve designed the Orcon Small Business service for three things: ultimate reliability, ultimate convenience, and all that at a low monthly price.”


Hamilton said Orcon has re-entered the small business space thanks to the new technology it can offer.


“Small businesses need super-reliable connections, but often can’t afford the monthly fee that comes with a gold-plated business service. But having a 4G SIM card built into the modem is an innovative way to ensure connectivity and a great price.”


Hamilton notes that the internet is indispensable to businesses of every type today as we rely on an internet service for a range of activities, from IP EFTPOS systems to online stock management to cloud accountancy and more.


“If your internet goes down, transactions can be lost, opportunities missed, and reputations tarnished.


“We know that nobody is happy when an internet connection goes down. But for small business owners, it’s more than an inconvenience, it costs money. Interruptions can become a thing of the past with Orcon Small Business: it’s a set and forget solution which uses UFB or a wired connection as standard, and automatically switches to 4G if there’s any interruption,” says Hamilton.


“The idea is that this service should effectively put an end to internet outages, for whatever reason. It is highly unlikely that both the wired and cellular networks will go down simultaneously, owing to their different modes of operation. And that gives our small business customers a far better assurance of reliability than ever before possible.”


The Orcon Small Business communication solution is priced at $89.95 excluding GST on a 12-month contract.
