Orcon folks my two year contract with Orcon (fibre) is up in a few months.

Firstly, does my current pricing just continue? I noticed Orcon are now charging extra for caller id and voice mail. I also have national calling included (for free) as part of my current plan.

Secondly, I was on a contract so that the Genius was "free" (ie no monthly charge). I assume I need to sign up for a new contract to keep this "free".

When i was on ADSL with Orcon, normal pricing continued... however if you switch to a diff plan, you'd end up on a new contract and lose the "free" calling. This is why I left... couldnt survive on 5GB a month, or paying a small fortune just for calling.

And no, or at least I didnt have to do anything to "keep" the router when my contract ended....  they only mentioned it when i moved to a new ISP.

Hi Tchart

If you dont change anything, your pricing will continue as is.

it will only change if you change your plan and enter into a new contract.
