Orcon named New Zealand’s best Mac ISP

Orcon was today awarded the Best Internet Service Provider for Mac in the 2006 New Zealand Macguide awards.

The award recognises a commitment to providing products and support that address Apple product users requirements and is decided on by the writers of Macguide magazine.

“We have always prided ourselves on providing our users with a great experience, no matter what platform they are on,” said Duncan Blair, Marketing Manager at Orcon. “We realise that Mac users have some unique requirements and we like to make sure that they are well catered for.”

This caps off an award-winning year for Orcon, having also been named 2006 ISP of the year in the TUANZ Innovation awards, and the fastest growing New Zealand Telecommunications Company in the Deloitte Fast 50.

“It has been an outstanding year for us here at Orcon, but with several great new products in development we are looking forward to even bigger things in 2007” concluded Blair.

A full list of awards and award winners is available in the January/February issue of New Zealand Macguide.
