Would like to get a fast Connection, and an Unlimited plan
And TBH I have no idea where to compare places
Is there a site that does this?

Who provides the fastest connection speeds? and who has the best plans?

I was told oricon would be the best to go with

telme.org.nz

Speed (usually) depends only on where you live.

Do you mean Orcon? Their service isn't great.
I've since switched to Snap for better service & better quality router.

It will be at a new house in the Totara Park area,
Is there any way i can tell if id get a decent connection there before i move in

Is UFB available? Go for that if you can.
OK, I looked. No UFB for you till 2018+ https://www.chorus.co.nz/using-our-network-upgrade-map

So you will want VDSL if possible. I had excellent speed (35 down / 10 up) with that, but you have to be within about 500m of a DSLAM.
