Orcon Introduces New Plans

Orcon has a range of new plans - which feature increased base data allowances up to three times greater than existing plans. They all now come with maximum upload and download speed.

Orcon's Taryn Hamilton says the company took a look at its prices in light of GST increasing and decided to boost data across the majority of residential plans. Orcon had already increased data caps on several plans in May.

"We have also looked at individual customers' usage over the past six months and will be emailing all @home and @home+ product users with a recommended plan based on their individual needs. I'm really proud of this initiative and it sits well with our customer ethos.

"Too many people trundle along on a plan that simply isn't suited to their needs, and we want to fix that."

Hamilton says new customers will automatically be signed up to the new plans, and existing customers will be able to switch whenever they choose.

He says Orcon has also increased upload speeds. "While it may seem like a small thing for the casual web surfer, many of our customers have been asking for higher upload speeds. We have flipped the switch to max for every new plan."

The data allowance changes are:


1) Increased Bronze+ base data allocation from 2GB to 5GB. $70 a month

2) Purple+ base data allocation remains at 25GB $80 a month

3) Increased Silver+ base data allocation from 5GB to 15GB. $80 a month

4) Increased Gold+ (with unlimited national calling) base data allocation from 10GB to 20GB. $100 a month

5) Increased Platinum+ (with unlimited national calling and unlimited calling to one overseas destination) base data allocation from 25GB to 30GB.

$120 a month


1) Bronze with calling. Data cap 5GB. $35 a month

2) Bronze without calling. Data cap 5GB. $40 a month

3) Gold (with unlimited national calling). Data cap 20GB. $110 a month

4) Platinum (with unlimited national calling and unlimited calling to one overseas destination). Data cap 30GB. $130 a month

A range of data bundles, including 300GB for $245, have also been added.

As part of the data plan increases, Hamilton says a number of other changes have been implemented, including making smartphone features an additional bundle, and re-pricing of the international calling plans.
