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.

Maybe if we start telling people the brain is an app they will start using it.

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.
