Openreach publishes latest Full Fibre build plans
Openreach, the UK’s largest wholesale broadband network, has published updated plans about where and when it is building ultra-fast, ultra-reliable Full Fibre broadband across the UK.
As part of its regular programme of build updates, the company has also announced 10 new locations where it plans to deliver gigabit-capable technology to a further 124,000 homes and businesses. The locations are spread across the UK in areas including: Cheriton in Kent, Mexborough in South Yorkshire, Grangemouth in Scotland, and Morriston in Wales.
Overall, more than 2,800 towns, cities, boroughs, villages and hamlets are now included in the company’s build programme, which is fundamental to the UK Government achieving its target of delivering ‘gigabit capable broadband’ to 85 per cent of UK by 2025.
Openreach recently passed more than ten million premises across the UK, including more than three million in the hardest to serve ‘final third’ of the country. In December 2022, Openreach updated its website to include more information about when the build will start in each exchange location and it’s now updating this build information a minimum of every three months to adjust timings and add new locations as necessary.
Ultimately the company plans to build Full Fibre to 25 million homes and businesses nationwide by December 2026.
For the most personalised view of an individual home or business, Openreach recommends using its online postcode checker where people can find out the specific broadband connectivity available at their address.
