Folks, this is not a free for all market. I think users are smart enough to check the other forums.

How would you feel if Orcon were to going around the other forums posting their prices every time someone complained?

Slingshot: How about Slingshot then?

15c p/min capped at $2 for 2 hours <snip!>

Slingshot has an unbeatable price promise on tolls - find a publicly adveristed per minute rate and we'll beat it.

Food for thought...



Hmmmmm..

Maverick: NZ landlines$0.10    ( 9 cents per minute cheaper)



Food for thought...


:-)

duncanblair: Hi guys,

The price increase for Homeline customers ($3) is due to an increase in the wholesale cost of homelines from Telecom. We have held off increasing our homeline price as a result of this for longer than any of our compititors (as far as I know).



Hi Duncan, i have my Line with Telecom and nonLLU broadband with Orcon + tolls, why do i have to pay 5$ more per month if your homeline wholesale cost went up 3$, when i dont have my homeline through Orcon?

Hi Dan,

Fair question. The reduction of the tolls discount is related to the increased costs of delivering international bandwidth. Broadband plans with a $10 discount for tolls were not sustainable given the increase in costs we face.

Are you sure your Orcon primary email address is up to date? They definately sent an email:

Both my primary and secondary Email addresses have not changed in over three years, so yes i do think they are uptodate and to top it off i just rang orcon to change to a fs/fs from an fs/128 plan only to find out that when i was changed over from a zero shock plan my tolls was not migrated aswell so i've been paying 10 bucks a month more than i should have been do you think theres a cance they'll back date it to when i changed and credit my account !!
