dacraka: Does this include watching YouTube on a mobile phone for e.g. an iPhone via a Wireless LAN connected to an Orcon internet connection?



Yes, because the iPhone is just another connection to the WiFi network. The WiFi connection connects to Orcon Broadband.

All I can say is sweet!

Really good work from Orcon to offer these great deals to its customers, along with its great speed and customer service.

Good work guys!

Is the youtube caching new at orcon? Seems to be making a little bit of difference, but obviously on the more popular videos.

They would be doing this you they can cache everything here in NZ and speed up utube as they have had lots of complaints.

Cheers Orcon :)

Falconz: If only youtube was watchable for me id be excited lol

Seconded...

Though not using orcon's name servers has made it way more usable. I don't care if it counts toward my traffic. At least it works now... Ah orcon when did it all go so wrong?

yes it would, as any data counts towards your internet connection not your phone bill (obviously as you could surf wifi even with the phone's mobile connection switched off)
