About Enable

Enable is providing fibre broadband services to homes, businesses and schools in Christchurch and in a number of towns in the Waimakariri and Selwyn Districts – as part of the national ultra-fast broadband initiative.

The Enable Group is made up of Enable Services Limited (ESL) and local fibre company, Enable Networks Limited (ENL). 

ESL is a fully owned subsidiary of Christchurch City Holdings Limited (CCHL), the investment arm of the Christchurch City Council (the Council). ENL is fully owned by ESL. 

Enable was launched in 2007 to build a commercial fibre network aimed at providing better quality broadband services to businesses and schools in Christchurch. 

In May 2011, ESL entered into a partnership with the Government as part of the national ultra-fast broadband (UFB) initiative. The partnership is providing fibre broadband services to approximately 180,000 homes, businesses, schools and healthcare facilities across Christchurch and parts of the Waimakariri and Selwyn districts. 

Focused only on our region, Enable is inherently linked to the people of greater Christchurch and is committed to making a positive contribution to our community – via its critical fibre network infrastructure and underlying potential of fibre broadband to transform our community. 

Our fibre network is the essential enabler of an economically and socially vibrant, connected, innovative, and globally competitive greater Christchurch.
