Last week I signed up for Orcon Purple (naked dsl), and just this evening I've started using it which is exactly the day they predicted it would be up and running on. So full kudos to them for that

The telecom technician came by this morning and got the connect set up, I picked up the orcon homehub from the courier depot early evening and set it all up after my late dinner. No troubles at all, just plugged everything in and it just works. Smile

The one thing I perhaps had a slight worry about is youtube, but I've been happily watching plenty of youtube videos from past Ironman races I've been in without experiencing any pausing whatsoever of the videos Laughing

Other relevant details: I live in Auckland City only a block and a half away from the SkyTower, the only other internet provider I've used from this apartment is wireless Woosh which I stopped using early this year.

If my experiences change I'll update this, but I thought I'd post up a positive experience as opposed to all the negative ones (as people tend to only write when things go wrong rather than when they go right too)

What building do you live in? I'm thinking about moving to a place on Anzac ave and probably Orcon Purple too. Could you please do a speed test?

Thanks

probably won't post the exact building I'm in for obvious reasons, but I'll be more specific and say I live a block and half UP from the SkyTower which puts me at the opposite end of the CBD from Anzac Ave, if that even makes a difference however I wouldn't know?!
