Orcon acquires two ISPs
Posted on 14-Aug-2009 14:00 | Tags Filed under: News



Orcon has acquired Northland internet service provider iGRIN and Genesis Energy’s ISP Infogen.

The deals are set to go through on 1st September.

Whangarei-based iGRIN has been using Orcon’s network for the past eight years and is well known within the online community offering broadband, dial-up, web hosting and domain services.

Infogen has been retailing the Orcon service for more than six years as part of Genesis Energy’s retail offering.

Combined the two businesses have nearly 9,000 customers.

Orcon CEO Scott Bartlett says it will be business as usual for customers of both ISPs.

“While initially the only change for consumers will be the Orcon name on the invoice we are also confident that longer term our focus on providing first class internet will bring new benefits for customers of both,” Bartlett says.

A recent ISP broadband service performance analysis backs Bartlett’s assertion.

Orcon has been named co-top performer for the first six months of 2009 by Epitiro, the independent research company that benchmarks ISP performance across speed, reliability, performance and email delivery.

Epitiro looks at effectiveness from two perspectives, service performance and user experience. It says while Orcon’s performance in Auckland is particularly strong “…it also tends to be a good performer in most other regions of New Zealand…”.

Bartlett says it’s the second six month period in a row Orcon has topped the respected Epitiro rankings list.

“We strive hard to provide our customers with not only the best possible speeds but also the service excellence to back it up. We’re stoked this authoritative research shows we are succeeding.”
