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.
The UK’s fibre future is within reach. Together we can create a more connected, productive and competitive economy. Read our Blueprint for a Full Fibre future and the Cebr’s research report to learn more about our commitment to delivering great connectivity to communities across the UK, transforming the way people are able to live and work.
We want to play the leading role in helping the Government to achieve its target of a fully fibred UK by 2033. And as the Chief Strategy Officer at Openreach, my mission, and that of my team, is to define the future direction of the business, and therefore help turn the Government target into reality.
We now intend to reach an extra one million premises within our original timeframe, meaning four million homes and businesses will have access to a full fibre to the premises (FTTP) service over our network by the end of March 2021.
