Auckland will remain in lockdown until Sunday, a four-day extension of the lockdown which was meant to lift on Wednesday.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said there were promising signs that the Government was getting on top of the virus, but a short extension was recommended by director-general of health Ashley Bloomfield.

On Sunday night Auckland would move down to level 2. The rest of the country would stay at level 2.

Ardern said the rest of the country needed to stay at an elevated alert level to mitigate the risk of cases leaving Auckland when interregional travel resumed. Click here to read more.

Why you should choose fibre broadband

Enable Fibre

Choosing the right broadband can be a real headache managing all the technologies, deals and services from internet providers. As well as fibre, there’s other technologies around like cellular-based services sold as broadband (called fixed wireless) and some homes are still on old copper … View moreChoosing the right broadband can be a real headache managing all the technologies, deals and services from internet providers. As well as fibre, there’s other technologies around like cellular-based services sold as broadband (called fixed wireless) and some homes are still on old copper broadband (called ADSL and VDSL).The Commerce Commission publishes a quarterly broadband comparison report called “Measuring Broadband New Zealand” to help consumers make informed decisions.

The latest report highlights the differences in performance in average download speeds on different technologies. On a 100Mbps (megabits per second - speed) fibre plan, you get an average speed of 99Mbps – so what you would expect and pay for. On a top end fibre plan the average speed jumps to over 708Mbps. Other technologies are much slower – ADSL (9Mbps), fixed wireless (26Mbps) and VDSL (43Mbps).

Speed is the key to good broadband performance and the report highlights this. With fibre, you can successfully stream ultra-high definition video nearly all the time (99%). On VDSL this drops by about 10%, on fixed wireless this will only work two-thirds of the time and one tenth of the time on ADSL. Fixed wireless, ADSL and VDSL can also be prone to performance drops when lots of people are using their broadband service at the same time.Sometimes bad weather can be a factor for cellular-based services. Fibre does not suffer these issues.

Visit our website to find out if fibre is available at your place.

All the best, from your local Enable Fibre team.
