Fibre broadband superior during winter

The benefits of fibre may be particularly noticeable or heightened during the winter months.

Fibre broadband is the latest advancement in broadband technology. It offers a superior internet connection to your home, business or organisation, compared to other technologies. 

You may have noticed that your family spends more time inside on connected devices during the cold and wet months. Not only can fibre withstand environmental factors like rain or cold temperatures, it allows for quicker downloads and uploads, multiple devices can be connected without issues, and it offers a consistent and reliable online experience for your whole family.

What's more, everyone else on your street probably spends more time indoors working, shopping, streaming movies or browsing the web when it is cold. Fibre broadband connections aren't impacted during peak times when lots of people are using the network – and it's during increased demand like this, when a reliable and fast internet connection is essential.

Switching to fibre broadband may instantly resolve any issues you and your family are having doing the things you want online or improve your internet experience.

If you're a Christchurch family, business, school, healthcare facility or community organisation, there's a good chance Enable fibre broadband is available at your place.
