Fibre availability

Your future with broadband

Full fibre - now or in the future?

We’re in the middle of a huge full fibre broadband roll out – we’ve already connected 7.2m premises we plan to connect 25 million by the end of December 2026. This is an enormous, complex project, so where and when we build has to be planned carefully. This section explains what our fibre checker tells you, gives an insight into how we plan where to build full fibre and what your options are if Full Fibre isn't immediately available at your home or business.

What does my fibre checker result mean?

Once you put your postcode into our fibre checker, there are a few possible results – it’s not a simple ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Let’s take a look at the responses you can get and what they mean for you.

Good news - you can order fibre

This means exactly what it says – Ultrafast full fibre is available at your address. You can choose and order a broadband package from your preferred service provider.

You're in plan

This means that while you’re not currently able to order full fibre, your address is in our build plans. The best thing to do is to register your interest – this tells us you’d like full fibre so we can keep you informed as the build progresses and let you know as soon as it’s available to order.

Register your interest in getting Ultrafast Full Fibre via our fibre checker and we'll keep you posted.

Sorry, but you're not in plan

This means that, unfortunately, your address isn’t in our build plans at the moment. It’s important to remember that our build plans change all the time. Just because your address isn’t in our plans now, doesn’t mean they won’t be in the future. The best thing to do is to register your interest – this tells us you’d like full fibre so we can keep you posted and let you know if our build plans change.

What can I do if I'm not in the current plans?

If you aren't in our current build plans but think there’s a high level of demand in your area, then there’s also the option of a Fibre Community Partnership (FCP). Find out how we can work with your local community and government to bring full fibre to your area.

How our build plans work

We’re building full fibre across the UK, but we can’t be everywhere at once, so we prioritise our build plans based on feasibility and demand. We build full fibre everywhere, from city streets to mountains and valleys, and that means lots of challenges.

We also need to obtain permission to access private land and to plan our builds so that they cause minimal disruption to the environment and to the lives of local communities.

The reasons why your address might not be in our build plans aren’t static. We might be held up over permission from a private landowner, for example. Once that permission is granted, your address might be added to our plans.

Meanwhile, our fibre checker will let you know the best broadband option currently available at your address and you can find out more about the ‘where and when’ of our national build plans.
