Hey everyone!

We are interviewing Orcon, a company commited to getting the best broadband to Kiwis. They are one of the broadband providers on glimp, so we thought it would be great to find out more about their values and what makes them different. We hope you enjoy!

Can you please give a bit of background on your company?

Label us geeks if you will, but we know our stuff when it comes to the internet. We don’t just want to be fast, we want to be the fastest. We also want to be first.

In 2012 we even launched Ultra-Fast Broadband before anyone else. Why? Cause we love new stuff, and fast broadband, and are committed to getting the best broadband to Kiwis – quickly.

What are your values?

We’re all about future-proofing. There’s no other place we want to be than ahead of the game, let alone any time to stand around pondering ideas. We jump right in, and we’ll give you a run for your money if you try beat us to it.

We're passionate about fibre and great broadband – and we think fibre's the best thing since sliced bread (or potentially great coffee) to be launched in New Zealand, and want to get everyone on board. Though we’ll be the first to admit getting fibre installed can be fiddly – but we have a few tricks up our sleeves to make it as pain-free as possible.

As a company, what do you pride yourself on?

While we’d happily write our own reviews, who would believe us? We’re stoked that others recognise how we act and think differently too – over the years we’ve won a stack of awards for our service, our innovation, and just for being us. Orcon is made up of Kiwis who love the internet and you can count on us to be digging in too.

What kind of services do you provide?

We’ve got big meaty plans, so our customers can get amongst it and get the most out of their internet.

We offer a range of ADSL, VDSL and fibre plans, starting at 100GBs through to Unlimited. If you can get fibre, it’s a no-brainer – it’s the same price as standard broadband but has more capacity for all those internet devices.

Those based in Gigatown Dunedin have access to the fastest residential broadband in the southern hemisphere, after they won a competition run by Chorus to determine which town in New Zealand would be the first to receive ultra-fast broadband technology – lucky things!

Other Orcon services include:

Along with our current services, we recently launched a series of designer modems, called the Orcon Designer Series – where we partnered with five well-known Kiwi artists to collaborate on the artwork and then offered 500 limited editions of each style for customers! Cool huh?

Where do you provide your services?

Nationwide, but check our website for availability.

What sets you apart from other providers?

You can trust Orcon to know what’s up – innovation is at the helm of everything we do, and we want to push the boundaries about it too. Watch this space for more awesomeness!

We hope that you enjoyed our quick interview with Orcon - an awesome and innovative broadband provider. If you would like to see and compare the broadband plans that they offer, just go to glimp.co.nz.

I’ve just had a great experience with Kurt from glimp compare. He helped me through the process from the time I clicked onto the website, via the chat function. Long story short I have signed up to a new power and broadband provider with significant cost savings. There was no pressure at any stage, just respectful guidance and facilitation to initiate the new supply.

Easiest service to use and knowledgeable and experienced staff. Made switching power and broadband stress free! Thanks Jamie S, they answered all my questions I had about starting a new connection for broadband and power - even better than calling Slingshot direct as I got 3 months free internet and credit for using my own modem :)

Virtually instant contact after filling out online form. Great rep - friendly and informative, great deal made for cheaper power, overall so far so good 😁

Used Glimp to get a better deal on gas/power Jamie S made things very easy and was super helpful. Would definitely recommend
