I have recently been through a similar process and the key points to note are:

-  No other company than Telecom or Sky can offer Sky Digital startup

-  If you transfer your phone line to Orcon, you will have to arrange Sky Digital startup directly with Sky

Seriously, do you really want to transfer to Orcon?

I have nothing against them as a company, and indeed, some of their staff make a lot of effort to look after customers, but I suggest you have a read of this thread, and you may change your mind:

Who else would I recommend?

-  Xnet (although they still have some problems with slow International Speeds at night)

-  Vodafone (have probably the best-priced deals ATM, especially if you are in their "Red Network" areas)

HTH,

Grant.
