Im happy with it, but its amusing to see the two different views on the Orcon offering, one side you have those that have'nt used VoIP at home before and are willing to give Orcon a go, then you have the other side who are Xnet users and have been using their service for a few years and going on about Orcon being slow etc.
Yes, XNet have had a good (from what I've heard) VoIP service for a while but Orcon are the first to really push VoIP into the consumer market. If Xnet had pushed their service into the consumer market more, maybe things would be different.
As someone recently said to me, "It's like selling kitset cars for years and then along comes the Model T Ford."
Anyway, each to their own, I just happen to prefer Orcons offering at this time.

Features and prices aside, Xnet's marketing could do with a boost.
Their website design got redone recently, yet it's possibly worse than before.
Walls of black text on a grey background (horrible contrast), PDF files everywhere you look...
Compare that with Orcon's website, which is all snazzy, bright, colourful, short on text up front for higher impact, and much more inviting.
And I don't think I've ever seen an Xnet advertisement before, unlike Orcon's campaigns!
I get the impression that Xnet just sits around waiting for customers to join, whereas Orcon actually makes an effort to attract new customers.

I've been with Xnet for just over 3 years now and wasn't aware they did any marketing at all. Only heard about them through this site.
Absolutely no complaints about the product though. It was easy to set up and it works. Can't really say any more than that.
