Double the Speed for the Same Price

31 May 2018


Fibre broadband provider Stuff Fibre has welcomed the announcement that Enable, fibre network provider for Christchurch, will increase the base connection speed available for residents from 100 to 200Mbps; in celebration of completing its entire area roll out.

That means from the first of July, Christchurch locals will boast access to broadband faster than the number 1 ranked country in the world, Singapore* – and for no extra cost if their internet provider passes on the benefit like Stuff Fibre plans to.

“All new Stuff Fibre customers in the Enable coverage area will be offered a 200Mbps fibre connection as our entry-level plan, with the option to upgrade to even faster Gigabit speeds,” says Stuff Fibre CEO Sam Morse.

“This is an exciting announcement for the people of Christchurch and especially our existing Stuff Fibre customers who won’t have to do a thing and will be automatically upgraded to the faster speeds over the next few months.”

“Kudos to Enable for serving its local community by delivering a better and faster service and allowing retail service providers to pass it on to customers for the same monthly price. And just in time for winter when older copper lines are prone to more technical glitches and faults,” says Mr Morse.

Fibre is the best and most reliable broadband experience available, allowing the whole household to be online seamlessly at once.

Now with every home in the Enable coverage area having access to Ultra-Fast Fibre and with Stuff Fibre offering a 3-month trial for just $49 a month, there’s never been a better time to get connected.
