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.
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.
