We’re modernising the way we deliver phone and broadband services across the UK. We’ll be moving from the traditional analogue phone network, known as the Public Switched Telephone Network, or PSTN, to newer digital technologies by December 2025.
A large proportion of our new Full Fibre network is already in rural areas and we want to go much further. We’re widening out our build programme to include 250,000 homes and businesses in more than 200 rural locations.
We’re working to make Salisbury the first city in the country with universal access to our future-proof, next generation Full Fibre broadband in what’s expected to be the fastest city-wide network build in the UK.
Ex-RAF high flyer, Cheryl Burgess, who now works on Full Fibre broadband delivery, shares her story and career advice as part of our blog series for #BalanceforBetter - the International Women’s Day campaign.
