COVID-19 - Caring for our community

The wellbeing of Enable’s customers and staff is always their top priority.

They understand that many people in our community rely on a consistent, fast internet connection to stay connected – to receive the latest health updates, stay in touch with friends and family, keep a business operating or to work from home. They would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that, as an operator of critical infrastructure, they have plans in place to ensure they can continue to keep their community connected.

With stricter measures currently in place to stop the spread of Covid-19, it is realistic to assume that people in our community may be required to work from home. Now is a good time to check your home broadband to see if you’re set up to shift to the ‘home office’ if need-be. Enable have redirected their resources to ensure they can progress all fibre orders as quickly as possible.
