Hi

 

So how is this deal. You pay half price for 6 month for a 100/20 UFB, 12 month contract. Does Orcon put you on a congested line or low priority line for the first six months to make up for the price. How does it work.? Is it worth taking the deal. 

 

 

 

Also I am in wellington, lower hutt. Any Orcon users can give some feedbacks. how is their speed at peak times and their service.

 

 

 

Thanks

Hi there,

 

Sorry for the delay getting back to you - only just picked this up now!

 

To answer your question: no, you will not be given a degraded service. You'll be at the exact same service levels as anyone else. We don't artificially throttle your connection - we believe doing so is really stink.

 

Feel free to fire me a PM if you have any other questions!

 

Cheers,

 

Cam

Why would you think Orcon would do this?
