I have a new install of Orcon's Unlimited $99 plan which has voice over ip via their auto-configuring genius unit.
I have moved towns and was previously on Slingshots unlimited plan and thought I would share my experiences.
So far ....
Ok performance overall.
I get about half my line speed here at non-peak times.
Previously I could max my line out with Slingshots plan most of the time but sometimes it would be much slower.
On slingshot however my line rate was around 10 Mbps and at the new place on orcon it is around 18 Mbps.
As I didn't have as quick a dsl circuit previously I don't know if Slingshots would max that connection speed or not but Orcon certainly doesn't.
Hollow sounding with some echo but not too distracting.
Seems stable, not had any cut off like some cell providers do(yes I'm talking about you Telecom).
Compared to Slingshots normal phone line it's far less quality.
Here Orcon shines. $99 vs $121 (here)(no Slingshot better network at this address .. I used to pay $111).
Overall ... If slingshot was cheaper I'd jump back in a heartbeat. But as I'm a student now(or at least next year) I'll stick out this lesser connection.
Contemplation before I hit the submit button ....
Maybe some orcon dude will read this and see some room for improvement ,,, ;)
Anyone else considering these types of plans may be a little more informed anyways.
