I only have 6 days left until a new billing month starts on my Orcon account, and I just ordered Telecom broadband a few minutes ago. Is it wishful thinking to expect my Telecom broadband to be up and running before then?

Took them 3 days, which I'm very satisfied. The speed is awesome! And the support was very pleasant to talk to. Good job Telecom!

BTW I'm in North Shore. :)

Thanks everyone. I got finally got an email back from them and I'm getting connected on the 22nd. Just 1 day before a new billing month starts with Orcon, so that's pretty good timing =D
