Orcon moves into the South Island

14 Feb 2011

Orcon has unbundled its first South Island exchanges in Christchurch and Dunedin and announced it will also be unbundling Palmerston North and Rotorua later this month.

From today households and businesses in Christchurch and Dunedin can sign up for Orcon’s local loop unbundled (LLU) telephone and ADSL2+ broadband network service – Orcon+.

The new exchanges are Christchurch Central, Dunedin Central, Palmerston North Central and Rotorua Central, and will cover nearly 40,000 homes and businesses.

Orcon now has a foothold in eight New Zealand cities.

Head of Sales and Marketing Taryn Hamilton, said, “We have had a lot of enquiries from New Zealanders about when various exchanges will be unbundled. Following on from last month’s launches in Hamilton and Tauranga, we’re pleased to be able to extend our award-winning service to another four regions."
