Hi Everyone,

 

I've had issues with Orcon not working since it was installed on the 11th August.

 

First it didn't work, got billed for a month on troubleshooting and replacing the modem/router.

 

After a month, I got connected for 3 days before it dropped off. They confirmed the issue was 100% on their end.

 

It then dropped off twice more, again fixed by them (nothing wrong with my setup/hardware etc) before I finally raised a complaint with the Orcon Support team.

 

Their response was a text message asking me to "call us for an apology".

 

I called fuming, and was offered 2 months free for the month loss of service.

 

The bill has come in for my second month, and no credit has been applied.

 


So in summary:

 

Signed up for Orcon.

 

No service for a month. 

 

Disconnected 3 times after getting connection.

 

Orcon admit complete fault, offer compensation.

 

Does not apply compensation. 

 

 

 

I don't want to deal with them any more. Please help!

Hi there,

 

I'm sorry to hear that you've had a bit of a rough time with us recently - it sounds like we could've done a bit better.

 

PM me with your account details and I'll take a look and see what's going on.

 

Cheers,
