Our household ( Frankton, Hamilton) has been an Orcon Customer some time now and earlier in the week we got an email saying that this week were going to get an upgrade of our speed.

 

30 to 100 Mbps which was changed over today.

 

Thanks to Orcon for this. Presumably most of the ISP are offering these upgrades to keep customers ??

Spark did it earlier on this year. I'm pretty sure most of the providers have done this or are going to do it soon.

for the provider, its somewhat a logical move to make.

The likes of Spark and Vodafone are only giving it for 12 months, Where as for an ISP like Bigpipe, 100/20 is the norm
