m0dsta: Hey. I'm currently on one of Orcon's old plans (15GB FS/FS) and am looking at switching to the platinum+ plan (25GB cap, homeline etc). Firstly, would you recommend doing this? Secondly, according to Orcon's website, it's not available in my area yet (Orakei, Auckland). Any ideas when it will be?
willnz: Your phone line itself will be on the Remuera exchange, but due to the distance between Orakei and Remuera you'll almost certainly be going through a cabinet between your premises and that exchange. Orcon can not offer their Orcon+ services to customers that are on a cabinet (yet...), and you really don't want to NOT be on a cabinet or your connection performance will degrade tremendously.Yeah. Service is fine. Only problem is, it's rather expensive. I'm paying about $65 a month for Pro Max/Max Broadband Line Speed with 15gb of data. I almost ALWAYS go over this, which costs me an additional $10 for 5gb.
Stick with what you've got. If it ain't broken, don't fix it!
scottjpalmer:Things on the site are also changing tomorrow night... so if you don't find something's right... it's going to change.m0dsta: What would you recommend?
scottjpalmer: Price and cap, while significant, aren't everything. Small sacrifices there may lead to bigger sacrifices elsewhere . . .Hmm fair point. Although I really can't afford to keep shelling out $10 for 5gb everytime I go over my cap. 'Tis a shame I can't get on their '+' plans yet, as they look perfect for me. Will have a look at my options though...
