Just out of interest, how did the pricing stack up?

They then came back and asked my opinion about Orcon vs others... I said Orcon - the manager said "Great, Orcon it is - if it all falls apart, it was your choice so its your fault" - great - dont break anything over there ;)

Orcon and Vector have a few scheduled outages coming end of this month already scheduled, hopefully you are not online until April sometime otherwise expect a break in connectivity for a wee bit.

They happened last night, so nothing for xpd to worry about :)

The outage was very short and lots of notice was given...and done in the wee hours of the night.

Zeon: Just out of interest, how did the pricing stack up?

Bit of a hard question to answer as all providers will start playing off one another ;)
And thats what happened..... few other factors came into play as well - but Orcon overall won out for us with pricing vs features etc.

Good call Orcon was my recommendation, sorry I was a bit late.
