Central city  |  13 Jul 2021

Christchurch City owned and operated fibre broadband provider, Enable, is bringing Hyperfibre to Christchurch from early August.

The next generation of fibre technology will be made available across Christchurch’s Central Business District to support the ongoing growth of the city ahead of its rollout across the community.

Hyperfibre delivers download speeds more than 40 times faster than the average broadband speed enjoyed in New Zealand today and 300 times faster than the average speed provided by the likes of fixed wireless broadband.

“Christchurch has a fantastic central city designed to reflect the way people want to work and live today, and in the future. Hyperfibre – with some of the fastest broadband speeds available anywhere in the world – will be another ingredient that makes our city a great place to live,” says Enable Chief Executive Steve Fuller.

For our community having access to truly world-class fibre connectivity – in terms of speed, performance, and reliability – is a huge enabler of how we live now and will play an even bigger role in our future,” Mr Fuller says.

“Hyperfibre will meet the growing needs for greater upload speeds, which are critically important in areas like telehealth, remote working and distance learning, not to mention for technology and digital businesses looking to reach global markets.

“It’s going to be exciting to see what the likes of these businesses, avid gamers and school students, our leaders of tomorrow, can do with Hyperfibre,’’ Mr Fuller says.

Enable is looking for expressions of interest from anyone within the central city who has the vision to make the most of Hyperfibre and is hoping to have the first few customers connected and enjoying the service in August.
