Christchurch City Holdings Limited (CCHL) is the wholly owned investment arm of Christchurch City Council, holding shares in eight trading companies, including the Lyttelton Port Company, Christchurch International Airport and Orion (the local electricity lines company).
Enable Networks Limited (ENL) is a Local Fibre Company formed by Enable Services Limited (ESL, a subsidiary of CCHL) in partnership with CFH to build and operate the UFB network for Christchurch and surrounding centres.
In November 2011, it began extending the UFB network in Christchurch, and will in coming years pass homes, schools and businesses in Christchurch, Rangiora, Kaiapoi, Woodend, Lincoln, Prebbleton and Rolleston.
The ENL UFB network will play a vital role as Christchurch rebuilds – it will sit at the heart of the vision for a 21st century city. It will generate new industry, provide unprecedented access to global markets and services for local businesses, and enable the people of Christchurch to connect with each other in exciting new ways.
