Building for the future
We're connecting residential and commercial properties to the fibre broadband network
We've already made Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband available to four and a half million homes and businesses and want to reach 20 million premises by the mid to late 2020's, subject to conditions being right. To help us do this, we'll build a full fibre, Fibre to the Premises, network to new residential or mixed residential/commercial sites. It makes sense for you and your development, and it's easy for you to sign up.
Fibre for landlords
Are you a building owner, landlord or managing agent? Fibre broadband could help you get – and keep – more tenants, meaning better returns on your investment. And we might even be able to bring it to your building for free. Use our fibre checker to see if you’re eligible.
Find out what wayleaves are, who to contact if you need help with one and answers to questions if we have a wayleave agreement set up with you.
For commercial only sites of 20 or more units we’ll install Full Fibre for free.
For single commercial plots, or sites of 2-19 units we'll work with you to offer a bespoke network solution, and we'll contribute an amount per unit towards the cost of the build. The table below outlines the Openreach plot contribution and developer site cost. We'll be able to give you more details after you register your site with us.
