Orcon is New Zealand's first internet service company to offer ultrafast fibre broadband. They’ve developed different solutions over the years to make their fibre offerings even more creative.
They want Kiwis to understand what it means to have fibre internet that meets global standards. While fibre is their main focus, Orcon also provides ADSL, VDSL, among other connections to meet the needs of every customer.
Note: This provider is no longer available for comparison here at glimp.
