Fibre for developers

Connect your residential or commercial properties to faster broadband

Building for the future 

We're connecting residential and commercial properties to the fibre broadband network

We want to bring full fibre broadband to four million homes and businesses by end of March 2021, and 15 million premises by the mid-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.
