Orcon set for Spring launch – New Zealand

New Zealand ISP Orcon has revealed that it will launch its MVNO in August or September 2009. The launch has been pending since initially being announced in October 2008.

Orcon will partner with Vodafone New Zealand for its services, getting full use of its 3G network.

Explaining their decision the Chief Executive of Orcon Scott Bartlett said: “We’re going to let the 800lb gorillas go first. They’ll spend millions of dollars, and if we launched now we’d just get lost in the noise. We’ll wait for dust to settle then do something in August or September.”

Orcon will likely target high-end residential customers and small businesses when it launches.
