As the kaitiaki of Ōtautahi Christchurch’s essential connectivity infrastructure, Enable is committed to ensuring that our community enjoys maximum value from their world-class fibre broadband services.
Enable delivers fibre broadband to more than 150,000 customers across greater Christchurch – including to 14,000 local businesses – and connects Christchurch to a digital world. It supports innovation and reach to more markets for local businesses. It also connects friends and family, supports teaching and learning opportunities, and provides access to essential online services and entertainment.
Beyond delivering its core fibre broadband services, Enable is focused on delivering strong financial returns to our community and adding additional value by addressing community needs; and they do all of this in a truly sustainable way.
In 2021, Enable returned its first dividend ($18 million) to the people of Christchurch as a community-owned asset worth well over $700 million. Enable also helps to eliminate digital inequity, supporting Ōtautahi Community Housing Trust (ŌCHT) to provide connectivity for digitally excluded tenants. It also provides free Wi-Fi in the central city, in-conjunction with the Christchurch City Council.
Enable is working towards being a net zero emissions business by 2030, driving down direct operations and purchased electricity emissions and expanding their sustainability goals to partners and suppliers to reduce indirect emissions.
