Just wonder what the average setup time is for Orcon ?
Ive been told approx 4 days by one person and today got told 10-14 days.... 10-14 days is a bit longer than what Id hoped but can live with it :)

Mine took ~ 3 weeks, but that was when Orcon first released LLU plans on the Glenfield exchange. I think the wait time is ~ 1 week these days.

I was also told 10-14 days when I signed up.

In about 2 days they emailed through the target date, which turned out to be a week.

10-14 working days is generally worst case scenario.

Depending on demand at the time (both from us and from other companies participating in unbundling), and whether or not you want your existing number ported (that takes longer), it usually takes somewhere between 4 and 8 working days.

I signed up on a Saturday and I was connected with Orcon on the following Thursday. So that's 4 working days.

Thanks all for your replies.

And yeah, porting number from Vodafone to Orcon... fingers crossed no issues with that... :)
