Have you asked them directly on the phone? You've essentially answered your own question unless if Orcon don't have the handovers in place.

Yes I have and they reckoned they don't have it here where as UFF say that I can have it here.  So when does Orcon roll this out for Tokoroa?

If UFF say it's available then check their website for local retailers.

If Orcon don't know when they will offer gigabit fibre, how would anyone on GZ know?

In an area with such a small number of customers clearly a larger handover to support 1Gbps plans simply doesn't stack up. Orcon, like a number of other RSP's don't provide Gigabit in every UFB area.


99.9% of UFB customers aren't going to notice a real world difference between 200/200 and 1Gbps. If you are in that 0.1% my suggestion would be moving to a RSP who does offer it.
