Protection Plan FAQs
Our Protection Plan acts as insurance if something goes wrong with your internal wiring, purchased hardware, ONT, or ETP. For a small fee of $3.95 per month, Orcon can arrange for a qualified telecommunications technician to come to your premises and repair your internal wiring and sockets or arrange replacement of damaged hardware. Without the Protection Plan, you will be responsible for the repairs inside your premises. This means that if any repairs are required, you would arrange your own local electrician to carry out the work. Alternatively, you can request Orcon to organise a technician to complete repairs although you will be liable for charges up to $230.
$3.95 per month and you are required to retain this service for a minimum of 12 months.
If a technician carries out repairs inside your premise, Orcon will on-charge the costs involved. This can be up to $230.
