Orcon expands unbundled network
Posted on 20-Jul-2010 09:39 | Tags Filed under: News



Telecommunications company Orcon has unbundled three more Auckland exchanges – Birkdale, Henderson and Albany – with a total of 41 now unbundled across the country.

Orcon CEO Scott Bartlett says: “Unbundling means more Aucklanders will see faster, cheaper and better broadband as it should be.”

This month’s unbundling follows an agreement between Compass, Orcon and Slingshot that sees the three telcos sharing their unbundled exchanges.

The three companies have plans to unbundle 50 new exchanges this year.

“Unbundling is key to New Zealand’s broadband performance in the coming years,” Bartlett says. “It enables us to install our own equipment and provide a better, faster service at a better price.

“While there is much talk about fibre being the future, we can’t take our focus off the here and now. The extension of LLU services is good news for Kiwi households.”

To date, CallPlus has unbundled eight exchanges in Hamilton and Compass has unbundled two in Christchurch. Orcon has unbundled 39 in Auckland and two exchanges in Wellington.
