No, you can't.

Eta: but why would you want to? it would be very expensive to do that since the unlimited plan is $99, so you would be paying around $150 for that when you add a separate landline.

Best you call the Orcon Sales line and they will talk you through the options. In theory for instance you can have Genius with POTS, that POTS could be with a seperate provider (as for any naked product).

However the costs may not stack up as Genius provides a voice service which can't be costed out. You would then be paying Orcon for a data+voice as well as the other POTS provider.....

 

Really depends on what your old plan is, why you are still on it and which plans are available to your address, the Sales Team will be best to advise.

Our address checker seems to think you could have unlimited, looking at your current plan it may still be cost effective even if you don't use the voip service....as I said, give the Sales Team a call and they will manually check direct which services you can have, it may now be possible for you to had an unlimited ADSL2 plan for less than you are paying for your 205GB - that would be a result!
