Orcon customers to enjoy

24 Nov 09

Orcon announced today that YouTube traffic won’t count towards its customers’ data caps until the end of January 2010.

From today Orcon customers can download and upload as much data as they like from the popular video site without fear of exhausting their data-cap limits.

“YouTube is one of the hottest properties on the web – with an almost endless supply of content. It makes up a big chunk of our customer base’s usage every month. With the school holidays looming and the festive season in full swing we’re expecting a big uptake from our customers,” says Orcon chief executive Scott Bartlett.

“Streaming and downloading can rapidly chew through gigabytes of data, so these holidays mums and dads can rest assured their data cap won’t take a beating. It is also a great opportunity for families to make and share their own holiday home movies with friends and family around the world.”

“It’s our way of saying thank you to our customers, and I reckon it’s a pretty good Christmas present for New Zealand households,” says Bartlett.

Other sites with zero-rated traffic for Orcon customers include www.tvnz.co.nz, www.biggie.co.nz, www.thealist.co.nz, www.georgefm.co.nz, Orcon mails servers and Orcon’s own website, www.orcon.net.nz.
