This mornings protest by Slingshot founder Annette Presley on the affordability of broadband in New Zealand is viewed by Orcon as a creative way to throw some 'dough' at highlighting a national issue. While we are sure Telecom will view the stunt as 'half-baked' and possibly nothing more than a 'flour-y' attempt at headline grabbing, however Orcon stands with Ms. Presley, and agrees there is a real 'knead' for change.
"It doesn't take a lot of 'grains' to appreciate that New Zealand needs improvements in it's broadband offerings to compete with the rest of the world; and we are encouraged by the government taking time to 'ferment' on the issue" says Orcon's General Manager of Operations and Regulatory Scott Bartlett.
Orcon was one of the first ISP's to offer one dollar a day broadband, and continues to offer some of the best broadband plans in New Zealand; with Mr. Bartlett describing Orcon's plans as 'much better than sliced bread'.

"Orcon has always been an industry leader in making broadband an affordable service in New Zealand, and while Annette protests in Wellington today on the affordability of broadband, Orcon will continue to 'cook up' new ideas on how to drive the quality up and the price down" continued Bartlett.
It has been a busy year in the ISP industry, with a lot of debate around the affordability and quality of broadband in New Zealand, and through its commercial negotiations with Telecom and industry participation with ISPANZ, Orcon stands with Slingshot in pushing for a better product for kiwi consumers.
"Annette certainly has a lot of pluck, no doubt about it; but what Orcon is focused on is providing a superior product compared to the rest of the industry, and to encourage customers to 'leaven' their existing provider and join Orcon, as opposed to being a 'gluten' for punishment with low data caps, high excess charges and 'half baked' service" concluded Bartlett.
Orcon has sustained a high level of growth over the past 3 years to become NZ’s 4th biggest ISP, and the largest ISP that is 100% New Zealand owned and operated. Previously best known as a provider of wholesale internet and business connections, Orcon has become a household name in New Zealand.
