Pledge to Back Better Broadband today

If you’re an MP, Mayor, or Councillor, we need your help to deliver world-class digital connectivity to the nation. 

This is something your constituents are demanding. Recent polling showed:

And we’re working flat out to deliver. We’ve got an ambitious target to build to 25 million homes and businesses by December 2026. We’re on track – upgrading eight million already at a rate of over 50,000 a week, whilst also ensuring we’re balancing build in the hardest to reach rural communities where we aim to reach 6.2 million connections.

However, this is an enormous undertaking. For us to keep up the pace, or even go faster, we need to continue to recruit and train thousands of engineers and remove the barriers that slow us down and make it harder to build. This is where you, as an elected official, can help.

Sign up to our Back Better Broadband Pledge

By doing so you can help us:

  • Remove all road blocks to the roll out
  • Recruit high-skilled engineering jobs into the UK
  • Advocate upgrading to the Full Fibre network to deliver its benefits to the nation.

If you're an MP, Mayor, or Councillor, please sign up using the form below. We’ll be in touch with more details about how we’re working hard to deliver Ultrafast Full Fibre to your constituents and across the nation, and how you can help us build the connections that matter.
