​South City becomes first fully fibre enabled mall in Christchurch

Christchurch’s local fibre company makes fibre broadband available throughout South City.

Christchurch’s local fibre company, Enable, has made fibre broadband available throughout South City; making it the first fully fibre enabled shopping centre across the area.

This programme has involved Enable working closely with South City’s management to fully reticulate the entire mall with Enable’s network - meaning all businesses can connect to fibre broadband as a result.”

Fibre is the way of the future and to be the first mall to give tenants, as well as customers, the best internet access available is a huge step forward for us,” South City financial controller, Aaron Comis, said.

Enable CEO, Steve Fuller, said that retail businesses can “benefit enormously” from making the switch to fibre broadband.

“Shops big and small are heavily dependent on connectivity these days, and fibre will make it a lot easier for South City based-businesses to do business,” he added.

“Managing a web presence, employing cloud-based services to run a store (accounting and payroll, stock control, point of sale and voice), backing up critical data and connecting in to head-office are just some of the things that are easier and quicker over fibre.”

Comis said access to Enable’s fibre broadband service also offers a number of benefits to the mall itself - in the way it’s managed and in the services provided to customers.

“Fibre will give us access to better services with the necessary speed to do it,” he added. “We can finally have IP phone systems hosted in the cloud.

“The free Wifi we currently offer throughout the mall is very slow, so by switching to fibre we expect to see more people in our cafes and food court browsing the internet.”
