Really starting to wonder if they're ever going to get around to rolling it out.


They said 18 to 24 months and now, here we are, 31 months later and still waiting.

Are you business or residential?


id say the economy is contributing to the slow rollout.  If not enough business demand then it’s hardly self funding right? 
Enable needs to make a return on investment (and I certainly hope they make cash given I live in Christchurch and Enable (the last time I checked), was still majority owned by the local council and I certainly want them to keep pumping cash into the council to reduce rates burdens on residents! 


For consumers 
- hyperfibre requires a lot of investment on upgrading to suitable routers, cables and devices capable…. I’d say the appetite isn’t there at the moment for a lot of businesses and even less for Jo average householders.   (Seems to be limited consumer options (none)  for routers under $500 and if you think about it….most people get by with current offerings.

Have you contacted them more recently than 31 months ago? What was the response?

@melted  I have Rang, even subscribed to Enable multiple times through there email updates and yet nothing 


kinda frustrating really. I'm super excited for hyper Fibre for Christchurch and greater Christchurch to get it 


Hopefully very soon we will get information with the rest of the roll out :)

I saw some news on their website recently about expanding their network around Kaiapoi and rangiora area, My guess is they're focused on that for now Extending our network | Enable

Far as I know this still stands ?

They only have a hold in the 3 new opened areas since about 2021 and can avoid due the HFC penetration and min rate.
